The quick process initiated by the District Court is working really well in processing earthquake insurance claims.  As an example an earthquake insurance claim filed early September 2012 progressed through notice of claim, response, information capsules and notice of pursuit and is allocated a judicial settlement conference for late October 2012.  The District Court charges $169.20 as a filing fee on the notice of claim and $906.30 on the notice of pursuit of claim.  The District Court deals with claims up to $200,000.  The $200,000 limit does not include interest and costs.
