Nevada School District to Settle Insurance Broker Suit for $1.65M

July 20, 2015

The Clark County School District in Nevada says it will pay a former insurance broker $1.65 million to settle a lawsuit that claimed the public agency ended the broker’s contract prematurely.

Business Benefits Inc. sued the district in May 2014 after the company’s contract was terminated with less than six-months notice after the firm raised its commission level.

The company acted as a go-between brokering insurance between the district and health insurance companies with the firm getting a commission from the insurer. The district says the settlement will be paid from its risk management fund.
