Rutkin and Tugander Edit CGL Policy Handbook for the ABA

August 23, 2023 | General Liability | Insurance Fraud

The American Bar Association has released The Reference Handbook on the Commercial Liability Policy, 3rd Edition. Edited by Rivkin Radler partners Alan Rutkin and Robert Tugander, the handbook provides concise overviews of the most salient points of insurance litigation over CGL policies.

The Third Edition tracks the standard ISO CGL form and includes general updates on a host of coverage issues, such as the insurer’s duty to defend and indemnify, the policyholder’s duty to comply with policy conditions, “occurrence” triggers, covered injuries, damages, insured status, exclusions, loss allocation, and issues beyond the four corners of the policy, like bad faith and jurisdictional concerns. The Third Edition also adds new chapters on Coverage C and Supplementary Payments, and weaves in emerging issues such as computer-related liability and opioid litigation.

This collaborative work is written by experienced counsel representing both policyholders and insurers. Authors include additional Rivkin Radler partners Michael Cannata, Michael Kotula and Frank Misiti.

The handbook offers seasoned practitioners with foundational material and leading case law to jump start their research, while guiding newer practitioners through the complexities of CGL policies.
