Although entitled to a defense from Evanston it is not without a remedy. If it properly reserves its rights it can pay for the defense and, if and when Allstate succeeds and obtains a money judgment against the plaintiffs, Evanston can refuse to indemnify the lawyers and obtain a return of all the money it spent defending them since the only way Allstate can succeed is if it proves the plaintiffs acted to defraud Evanston. It can also amend, to avoid the problem in the future, future policies to exclude the obligation to defend any suit where it is alleged that the insured acted fraudulently.
