This CLE webinar will provide insurance counsel with a review of coverage for statutory and liquidated damages, as well as attorney fees for opposing counsel in individual and class action claims. The panel will discuss policy interpretation, case law developments, and best practices for arguing coverage issues under CGL, EPLI, D&O and E&O policies from insured and insurer perspectives.

Description

Coverage of statutory damages has been a hotly disputed issue recently with the proliferation of privacy and data breach actions; statutory damages are a primary source of damages in litigation under FACTA, FCRA, TCPA and the Song-Beverly Act.

In addition to privacy-related litigation, these issues arise in many other areas of the law, particularly consumer fraud, antitrust and employment discrimination.

A related coverage issue is statutory awards of attorney fees. Are these costs recoverable as liability costs, and if so, does it matter whether they are assessed under a judgment or as part of a settlement? Similarly, are class counsel fees covered for class action claims?

Listen as our authoritative panel of insurance coverage practitioners addresses coverage issues associated with statutory and liquidated damages as well as attorney fees for opposing counsel in individual and class action claims. The panel will analyze case law developments and discuss arguments for resolving coverage issues under CGL, EPLI, D&O and E&O policies from insured and insurer perspectives.
