Insurance Company Sues to Prevent Disclosure of Insurance Information

Farmer's Insurance is suing the (Aberdeen) Daily World newspaper to prevent release of insurance claims information. The Insurance Commissioner, the agency holding the records, says the records are disclosable.

A Thurston County Superior Court judge issued a temporary injunction preventing disclosure and will take up the question of a permanent injunction.

This story in the Daily World describes the case.
