"These cases against 20th Century and Allstate quite frankly are the worst conduct I've ever seen by insurance companies. They used a number of fraudulent schemes to avoid payment. 20th Century was willing to take the insured's premiums for earthquake coverage, knowing that if a quake came, they would never indemnify for the loss. Allstate essentially did the same thing and they had the money to pay it." NAME: David A. Prestholt AGE: 41 HOME: Pasadena PROFESSION: Attorney.
