LOW v. GOLDEN EAGLE INS. CO., A097703

In a rare case where an insured tendered a defense and then negotiated a settlement on its own, leaving the insurer in the dark, the trial court abused its discretion by not ordering that the breach relieved the insurer of post-tender costs including the settlement.
