COVID-19 Travel Insurance Case Survives Dismissal Motion in Calif. Federal Court

  • Order

Hayes of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California found the plaintiff adequately alleged his claim for unjust enrichment because the allegations support an inference that defendants unjustly retained the premium for post-departure coverage in violation of the state’s unfair competition law.
