The lawsuit’s claims:
The Blast got their hot hands on court docs that indicate, “82-year-old Joan Lile has informed the court she is dismissing her case against Gunvalson and her insurance company, Coto Insurance & Financial Services” from January 29, 2019. Joan had accused Vicki of breach of contract, fraud and deceit, negligence, unfair business practices and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
In case you missed it, the complaint alleged that in 1996, Joan and her husband, Robert Lile, purchased a policy of long-term care insurance. They wanted a policy that if one spouse passed away, all future medical premiums for the surviving spouse would be covered on the policy.
Joan accused Vicki of “preying on the confidence and trust” of her and her husband, Gunvalson sold them a policy that she promised had an inclusion the special provision “Lifetime Waiver of All Premiums for a Surviving Spouse,” according to reports from The Blast. “Further, this SWOP benefit was of utmost importance to the Liles because Robert Lile was significantly older than Joan Lile and wanted, above all else, to know that his wife would be protected financially upon his passing.”
Vicki’s legal team’s response:
At the time the lawsuit was filed, the OG of the OC’s lawyer told The Blast, “The claims alleged against Gunvalson are completely false. Gunvalson has always acted professionally and with the utmost truthfulness and integrity in every transaction that she acted as an insurance agent for her clients. She has never engaged in any fraudulent conduct nor misrepresented any terms of any policy. She vehemently denies the false allegations made against her in the lawsuit by Mrs. Lile. The claims made against Gunvalson are completely false and lack any merit whatsoever.”
