The New Hampshire Insurance Company faces new legal challenges following settlement claims filed by former Atlanta Hawks General Manager Danny Ferry. Bruce Levenson, formerly with Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC, the team’s controlling group, is spearheading this lawsuit, not the current leadership.

Filed with Fulton County’s Supreme Court, the insurance company is being sued for breach of contract and insurance bad faith. According to Levenson’s group, the policy they were under covered basic work related engagements but also more specific occurrences like workplace termination and torts. The settlement given to Ferry, Levenson alleges ought to have been covered by their policy.

In June of 2015 according to a Forbes report, Ferry reached a settlement with the ownership of the team to break the six-year contract he entered into in 2012. It was finalized only a couple days before Levenson’s group relinquished ownership of the team.

While the court claims no legal authority to release the amount being sought, the suit alleges that the policy does merit Levenson’s claim of a lapse in policy fulfillment. The group alleges that the insurance company neglected to acknowledge the claim was made under its policy and refused to cover costs it should have.

The lawsuit goes on to state that portions of Ferry’s settlement were clearly covered by the policy they had for employees of the team, including the former general manager. And to deny coverage now is a breach in the policy they’d agreed to.

Do you spend a lot of time in the gym? Do you not spend enough time in the gym but want to start spending more time in the gym? Have you started shopping for new active wear? If not, here are some things you might not have known until now.

 

There is a fairly new company on the market who is making a big hit with those people who want to workout. If you want to be fit and active while looking good at the gym, Fabletics is the name you want to shop under. Up until the recent months, many people spent most of their time shopping on sites like Amazon. Because of this, Fabletics knew that they needed to do something to bring more customers over to their store. Because e-commerce is so popular, more stores are doing the online sales rather than individualized stores. Fabletics knew this and went along with the trend, which has worked for them.

 

Shopping online saves money for the consumer and store owner

 

By creating online retail space, the consumer is able to save even more money than if they opened an actual store. How you ask? Well its actually simple. The owner does not need to pay for retail space, there are no utility bills and there are less employees which saves on paying someone a salary. For these reasons, more people are using online retailers. Fabletics is one of those retailers.

 

Offering a variety helps bring more customers

 

By selecting a wide range of accessories and items, consumers are going to be more apt to look at their store than if they only sold 1 or 2 different items. For this reason, Fabletics has grown their coverage of items to a wide base. Customers can shop for all types of active wear, swim wear, dresses and pants and tops. There is an abundance of items for the consumer to choose from. Some items come in various colors while others do not. The items they sell also are made in a variety of materials.

 

Membership has its perks

 

For people who are members of Fabletics, they get to save even more on the items they purchase. You can be a member of the site and purchase items at a much lower cost than those who are not members. Some items will only be available to members while others might be able to shop without the membership it is always best to simply join and receive the discounted rates and be informed of any new and upcoming items as well as to any sales that might be occurring.

 

Fabletics has made drastic improvements to their retail store since originally opening. They now service a good portion of consumers who are shopping online. They offer comfortable clothing that is perfect for being active which is why more people are using them for their new active gear.
