Late notice defense on Idaho builder's risk claim

We obtained summary judgment in Idaho for a builder's risk insurer who was faced with a claim for failure of a retaining wall at a condominium project.  The wall had been rebuilt before the claim was ever reported to our client.  In granting our client's motion for summary judgment, the court found that notice given on year after the insured knew of the loss was not "prompt notice," and thus a breach of that policy condition.
