SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Underwriters involved in a legal battle with the Rolling Stones over a $12.7 million claim have won permission to seek evidence in Utah about the mental health of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend before she committed suicide in March.
A federal judge in Utah last month allowed the 12 underwriters to gather testimony and documents from Randall Bambrough of Ogden, the brother of L’Wren Scott.
She was a high-end fashion designer whose suicide prompted the rock group to postpone a concert tour of Australia and New Zealand and then file a $12.7 million insurance claim for losses due to its postponement.
In denying the claim, the underwriters said Scott might have been suffering from a pre-existing mental illness and her death might not be covered under the policy.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports underwriters are seeking information about her from Bambrough.
