Complete Victory in Health Care Rescission Case

On May 28th Barger & Wolen client Blue Shield of California won a complete victory in the landmark health care rescission case, Cindy Hailey and Steven Hailey v. California Physicians’ Service dba Blue Shield of California (pdf).

Today's verdict is a complete vindication for Blue Shield of California. It means we acted properly every step of the way. It means that our underwriting procedures were fair and complete, our application was clear, and we acted in good faith. There was no post-claims underwriting. The evidence of deceit by the Haileys was overwhelming. This decision proves that Blue Shield of California had every right to rescind the Haileys' coverage.

Congratulations to Barger & Wolen partner and lead trial counsel John M. LeBlanc and his team: partner Andrew S. Williams, associates Vivian I. Orlando and Jason C. Love, legal assistant Gloria Valles, and paralegals Cathie Sorenson and Eve Torres.
