Affirmed.
Insurer had no duty to defend its insured in underlying suit filed against him, where insurer properly cancelled insured's policy five month prior to auto accident which was subject of underlying suit. Insurer presented proof of mailing which contained all information required in Postal Service's Form 3877, which is a form acceptable to U.S. Post Office, and insurer was thus in compliance with Insurance Code. Court properly found that insurer maintained proper proof of mailing of notice of cancellation. (STERBA and PIERCE, concurring.)
