An insurance subsidiary of AIG has agreed to pay $1.625 million to settle a breach of contract suit stemming from money lost by the city of San Diego when a 2003 Chargers Monday Night Football game was moved to Arizona because of the Cedar fire.

Lexington Insurance denied the city’s claim of an estimated $550,000 loss in business revenue after the Oct. 27, 2003 game was moved because of ash-filled air surrounding Qualcomm Stadium during the fire.

“This was an important fight, as we expect companies that issue insurance policies to the city to honor our claims,” said City Attorney Michael Aguirre in a news release.

Roughly one-third of the settlement will go to the law firm of Levine, Steinberg, Miller and Huver, which litigated the case on a contingency fee basis.
