The case of the day is CE Design Ltd. v. HealthCraft Products, Inc. (Ill. App. Ct. 2017). CE Design was an Illinois company, defunct since 2010, and HealthCraft was a Canadian home health equipment firm. ING, a Canadian insurance company, was HealthCraft’s liability insurer. CE Design brought a class action complaint against HealthCraft in Chicago, alleging that HealthCraft had sent it unsolicited faxes. HealthCraft tendered defense of the action to ING, which reserved its rights pending investigation. Meanwhile, HealthCraft hired its own lawyer, moved to dismiss, and eventually reached a preliminary settlement for approximately $500,000, along with an assignment of its rights under the ING policy to CE Design. The settlement was preliminary because class action settlements have to be approved by the court.
