WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- Zenith National Insurance Corp. announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Zenith Insurance Company began serving summons and complaints today upon a Santa Ana medical clinic, its owner and manager, accusing them of taking part in a large-scale scheme designed to defraud the company's policyholders. Zenith becomes the first workers' compensation insurance company in the state to sue under a statute that the California Legislature passed specifically to help combat workers' compensation fraud.
