Consumer Group Demands That Insurance Commissioner Fire Attorney

A consumer group is demanding that the state insurance commissioner fire his attorney for working with insurers to help them avoid paying $300,000 in court costs.

The attorney intervened in a fight over auto insurance rates, according to the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights.

The group obtained a series of e-mails showing that William Gausewitz (GAWZ-wits) secretly collaborated with insurers to file a declaration.

The document supported the industry's claim that the court costs should be paid by the state, not insurers.

Gausewitz is a former insurance industry lobbyist who is senior counsel to Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner.
