Very few developments in Washington insurance law have received more attention over the past five years than the Washington Supreme Court’s ruling in Cedell v. Farmers Ins. Co., 176 Wn.2d.686, 295 P.2d 239 (2013). On February 25, 2016, Judge Ronald B. Leighton in the
Federal District Court for the Western District of Washington entered an order in Linder v. Great Northern Ins. Co., 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23289, in which the Court granted in part and denied in part a motion for protective order filed by an insurer regarding certain documents and communications between lawyers for the insurer and their client under Cedell.
