By FindLaw Staff on December 22, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In proceedings arising from the loss of insureds' home from a fire, insureds' petition for writ of mandate challenging a trial court's grant of the California FAIR Plan Association's (CFPA) motion to disqualify a party appraiser selected by insureds is granted and the order of the trial court vacated where: 1) party-selected appraisers may be disqualified when a substantial business relationship exists between the appraiser and a party; and 2) the disclosed relationship between the appraiser and the insureds' counsel does not warrant his disqualification.
