All-Sums-With-Stacking Rule: Landmark Stringfellow Decision
Analyzing the Impact of the California Supreme Court’s Ruling on Trigger of Coverage, Stacking of Limits, and Allocation of Loss
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will analyze Calilfornia's Stringfellow ruling and its impact on the critical issues of trigger of coverage, all sums allocation and stacking, for long-tail environmental claims, and other long-tail exposures such as asbestos, latent injury and construction defect cases.
- Analysis of court's Stringfellow ruling
- Impact on coverage from policyholder perspective
- Impact on coverage from insurer's perspective
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- What impact does the ruling have for policyholders to recover additional payment from insurers for ongoing environmental cleanups in California?
- What impact may the ruling have beyond California, especially in states that do not have well-developed coverage law?
- What can insurers do to mitigate the impact of the Stringfellow ruling?
Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
