Our February luncheon was exciting not only because of the hot topic but we were also trying out a new lunch space and caterer! During our most well attended luncheon since last March’s ethics session, Paul Rosner (Soha & Lang) and Terri Sutton (Cozen O’Conner) spoke on the implications of the Keodalah decision and its implications not just for adjusters but the potential of claims executives, attorney’s, brokers, and others possibly facing new risks of personal lawsuits. This case is still working its way through the courts and is one to watch. Terri, Paul, and Geoffery Bedell, also of Soha & Lang, have co-authored an amicus brief. Paul was also asked to provide his opinion for the Coverage Opinions newsletters. The presentation from the luncheon, the amicus brief, and a link to the Coverage Opinions newsletter are available on the Chapter website.
