Case No.: ****7258

Hearing Date: July 29, 2020

[TENTATIVE] order RE:

motion for leave to intervene by STATE FARM MUTUAL AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE COMPANY

Proposed Intervenor State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company (“Intervenor”) seeks leave to intervene in this action per Code of Civil Procedure section 387. Section 387 permits intervention in a pending action when the proposed intervenor has an interest in the matter that is the subject of the litigation, or in the success of any party. Code of Civil Procedure section 387, subd. (b) provides, “if the person seeking intervention claims an interest relating to the property or transaction which is the subject of the action and that person is so situated that the disposition of the action may as a practical matter impair or impede that person’s ability to protect that interest, unless that person's interest is adequately represented by existing parties, the court shall, upon timely application, permit that person to intervene.” (Code Civ. Proc., ; 387, subd. (b).) A liability insurer normally is not a party to an action by a third party against its insured, but may have the right to intervene in certain circumstances.

Intervenor has demonstrated that it issued an insurance policy to Defendant Dakota P. Ezell (“Defendant”). That policy might obligate Intervenor to pay any judgment entered in favor of Plaintiff Donna Morgan. Intervenor has been unable to locate or communicate with Defendant. Defendant therefore cannot defend this action. Based upon the foregoing, the Court thus concludes that Intervenor has a sufficient interest in this matter to support its intervention in this case, which Defendant cannot protect.

CONCLUSION AND ORDER

Intervenor’s motion for leave to intervene is granted. Intervenor shall file its proposed complaint in intervention within ten (10) days. Intervenor shall provide notice and file proof of such with the Court.
