Maryland the latest to sue U.S. Fidelis over auto warranty claims

U.S. Fidelis, a now-bankrupt auto warranty company allegedly sold what it called "bumper-to-bumper" coverage to Maryland consumers, but customer claims were often denied because the repairs were excluded from the service contracts, state Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler.said in announcing a lawsuit against the company.

Maryland is the latest state to sue U.S. Fidelis Inc. of Missouri, which used to be known as National Auto Warranty Services Inc., and did business as Dealer Services. U.S. Fidelis stopped selling warranties in December but continues customer service on existing contracts. The company did not immediately return a phone call requesting comment on Maryland's allegations.
