Recently as reported by ESPN, Bruce has been in the news because of a lawsuit involving New Hampshire Insurance Company. The suit claims that there was a breach of contract made on the part of the insurance company; Danny Ferry to be more precise. The lawsuit only involves the former Atlanta Hawks ownership group, not the current owners. The former ownership group, AHBE, claims that the insurance is refusing to pay on the policy. The policy in question states that it would cover certain losses that pertained to employment practices such as ‘wrongful termination’ and ‘workplace torts’.
According to many statements that have been released, the account of the claim is still confidential. The insurance company claims that there has been no breach of contract, and therefore, are refusing to make any type of payout. AHBE is seeking an additional 50% penalty if the insurance company continues to ignore the policy. AHBE has provided documented proof that Danny Ferry, a representative of the insurance company, acknowledged the policy and determined that there should be a payout. New Hampshire Insurance Company has offered no explanation as to why Ferry did so. For more info, visit brucelevenson.com.
