This casebook is the product of the authors' nearly sixty collective years of teaching and practicing Insurance Law. One of the authors has over two decades of experience litigating and trying insurance coverage claims, which means the casebook is written from both academic and practice-oriented perspectives. The casebook lends itself to teaching Insurance Law as a traditional 2- or 3-credit doctrinal course or as an experiential course because it includes numerous practice-oriented exercises that can be assigned throughout the course. The casebook covers traditional Insurance Law topics such as insurance contract formation and interpretation, insurance regulation, insurable interest, bad faith insurer breaches, property insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, commercial general liability insurance, claims made liability insurance, and auto insurance. In addition, unlike some Insurance Law casebooks, this casebook includes sections on choice of law, personal and advertising liability coverage for intentional torts and intellectual property infringement claims, proofs of loss, examinations under oath, efficient proximate cause, ensuing loss clauses, anti-concurrent causation exclusions, and business interruption insurance.

This edition contains extensive updates, with many new cases relevant for students anxious to acquire practical knowledge that they can quickly put to use when they enter the profession. For example, the Introduction discusses the Kentucky Supreme Court's 2010 decision in Kentucky v. Reinhold, in which a medical bill sharing program constituted insurance. Chapter 5, which discusses liability insurance features an excellent new duty to defend case, Pekin Insurance Co. v. Wilson, decided by the Illinois Supreme Court and 2010, and another new case, Mid-America Bank & Trust Co. v. Commercial Union Insurance Co., which offers a superior illustration of insurers' duty to settle and the bad faith consequences of related misjudgments. Chapter 5 also contains a critical analysis of the tripartite relationship in liability insurance. Chapter 7 on personal insurance contains new discussions of accidental death insurance and stranger-owned life insurance, both of which have been heavily-litigated in the last few years. There are other new cases, of course, they are but snapshots. The notes have also been substantially expanded with new cases and statutes from many states. Finally, this edition welcomes as a co-author Doug Richmond, a nationally-prominent insurance lawyer with long practical experience.

Over the past two decades, there have been a number of important developments in the areas of liability, property, and life and health insurance that have significantly changed insurance law. Accordingly, the Fourth Edition of Principles of Insurance Law has been substantially rewritten, reformatted, and refocused in order to offer the insurance law student and practitioner a broad perspective of both traditional insurance law concepts and cutting-edge legal issues affecting contemporary insurance law theory and practice. This edition not only expands the scope of topical coverage, but also segments the law of insurance in a manner more amenable to study, as well as facilitating the recombination and reordering of the chapters as desired by individual instructors. The Fourth Edition of Principles of Insurance Law includes new and expanded treatment of important insurance law developments, including: • The critical role of insurance binders as temporary forms of insurance as illustrated in the World Trade Center property insurance disputes resulting from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001; • The continuing debate between "legal formalists" and "legal functionalists" for "the heart and soul" of insurance contract law; • What constitutes a policyholder's "reasonable expectation" regarding coverage; • The current property and liability insurance "crisis"; • Risk management and self-insurance issues; • Emerging, and frequently conflicting, case law concerning the intersection of insurance law and federal anti-discrimination regulation; • Ongoing interpretive battles over the preemptive scope of ERISA; • The United States Supreme Court ruling that a California statute attempting to leverage European insurers into honoring commitments to Holocaust era policies is preempted by the Executive's power over foreign affairs; • The State Farm v. Campbell decision, which struck down a $145 million punitive damages award in an insurance bad faith claim as well as setting more restrictive parameters for the recovery of punitive damages; • New issues over the dividing line between "tangible" property typically covered under a property insurance policy and "intangible" property, which is typically excluded - an issue of increasing importance in the digital and cyber age; • Refinement of liability insurance law regarding trigger of coverage, duty to defend, reimbursement of defense costs, and apportionment of insurer and policyholder responsibility for liability payments; • The difficult-to-harmonize decisions concerning when a loss arises out of the "use" of an automobile; • Insurer bad faith and the availability, if any, of actions against a policyholder for "reverse bad faith"; and • The degree to which excess insurance and reinsurance may be subject to modified approaches to insurance policy construction.
