Scott Stanley successfully acted for the estate of a deceased women against her insurance broker. The deceased had been involved in an acrimonious divorce with her husband who lured her to their former home and murdered her before setting fire to the home and committing suicide. The insurance company properly denied the claim on the basis that it does not cover intentional acts. Scott achieved a partial settlement from the insurance company and successfully sued the insurance broker for the balance of $160,000. Scott convinced the Court that the insurance broker should have recommended to the deceased that she change her policy so that she would be protected if her former husband did intentional acts against the property. This case is one of the leading cases in British Columbia dealing with the negligence of insurance brokers.
