State Farm Fire and Casualty Company

Plaintiff contractor appeals a summary judgment dismissing its action against defendant insurer to recover insurance proceeds for plaintiff’s repair work on a storm-damaged home owned by defendant’s insured. Plaintiff contends: (1) defendant cannot offensively use Iowa Code chapters 522C and 507A to invalidate the homeowners’ assignment to plaintiff of their rights to recover under their insurance policy with defendant; and (2) plaintiff’s conduct before the date of the post-loss assignment did not violate the statutory prohibition on unlicensed insurance adjusting.
