Insurance Update

July 16, 2019 | Robert Tugander | Greg E. Mann | Insurance Coverage

Our July Insurance Update is now available.  Strap in, because we’re headed on a cross-country journey.

We start out in New York where the Court of Appeals hands down an important ruling involving no-fault payments to non-physician controlled medical services corporations.

We then cross the bridge into New Jersey where that state’s Supreme Court considers a case of first impression on STOLI (stranger-originated life insurance) policies.

We continue south where the South Carolina Supreme Court decides if an insurer’s denial of liability in a bad faith action gives rise to a waiver of the attorney-client privilege.

We next head west where an Oregon appellate court discusses “direct loss” in an embezzlement case.

On our way back east, we stop off in the Midwest where the Eighth Circuit discusses the effect of a batch clause, while a Missouri appellate court decides an easement-related fiber optic cable dispute.

We then circle up to New England where a dental products manufacturer tries to persuade the First Circuit to take a bite out of the IP exclusion.

And finally, we return to New York, where an appellate court considers whether the same late notice principles applied to policyholders should also apply to insurers bringing contribution claims.

We hope you enjoy the ride.
