FRAZIER v. SUPERIOR COURT OF ORANGE COUNTY (AMES), G029541

Because the disqualification of Cumis counsel would require a double imputation of knowledge of confidential information, first from one member of the law firm representing the insurer to another member of that firm, and second from the latter attorney to a different law firm entirely, and because case law does not support the double imputation, the court's disqualification of counsel was erroneous.
