Rolling Stones in insurance battle over canceled Asia tour dates

NEW YORK- Legendary rock group The Rolling Stones are locked in a legal battle with an insurance company over a $12.7 million claim for canceled tour dates in Australia and New Zealand following the March death of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend, designer L’Wren Scott.

A U.S. judge granted insurance underwriters, who have denied the claim by the rock group, permission to investigate the mental state of Scott, who committed suicide in her upscale New York apartment on March 17 at the age of 49.

Judge Brooke C. Wells of U.S. District Court of Utah ruled last month that the underwriters could question Randall Bambrough, Scott’s brother, about her medical and mental history.

The Rolling Stones took out a $23.9 million insurance policy before their 2014 tour of Asia and Australia to cover cancellations due to the death of family members and others who are listed in the policy, which included Scott.
