Municipalities Are Policyholders Too
CM partner Michelle Valencic co-authored a paper titled “Municipalities Are Policyholders Too: A Review of Unique Insurance Coverage Issues Faced by Cities and Towns” covering topics which were then presented for Continuing Legal Education credit at the 2015 American Bar Association Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee annual meeting. Michelle presented along with policyholder counsel and the General Counsel for a local municipality.
The article focused on the interplay of insurance and local governmental tort immunities, securities claims against municipalities, trigger of coverage issues raised in wrongful imprisonment claims, and the impact of open records laws on insurance settlements.
The paper was also published in a recent issue of the Coverage Journal of the ABA.
