About the Webinar: The Insurance Law Section of the State Bar of Texas and the Austin Bar Association ADR Section are proud to co-sponsor a Zoom webinar with some of the preeminent insurance lawyers and mediators in Texas. The panel of distinguished policyholder and insurer attorneys will discuss all aspects of mediating coverage cases, including: Zoom’s impact on mediations, how to prepare for coverage mediation, privilege and disclosure issues, and what are some issues that make insurance coverage mediations unique and some potential creative solutions for their resolution.

While the panel will discuss insurance coverage issues it will also focus on general aspects of mediation, including how parties and the mediator should prepare for mediations and what the parties should expect from a mediator, including whether a mediation should be facilitative or evaluative. Time will be set aside for the panel to answer questions.

About the Webinar: Two recent opinions issued by the San Antonio Court of Appeals have called into question the way that Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist cases are handled in Texas. In Allstate Insurance Company v. Irwin, 2019 WL 3937281 (Tex. App. - San Antonio August 21, 2019) and Allstate Fire and Casualty Co. v. Inclan, 2020 EL 373061 (Tex. App. - Corpus Christi, January 23, 2020), two intermediate courts have held that attorneys' fees are recoverable in UM/UIM declaratory judgment actions and in State Farm Mutual Automobile Association v. Cook, 2019 WL 4453763 (Tex. App. - San Antonio September 18, 2019) the San Antonio Court of Appeals held, in a matter of first impression, that an insurer can act in bad faith by failing to reasonably investigate or delaying payment on a claim for UM benefits until after the insured obtains a judgment establishing the liability and uninsured status of the other motorist. Meanwhile, litigants continue to squabble about the scope of discovery in UM/UIM cases, with mixed messages coming from the various intermediate courts and the Texas Supreme Court showing little willingness to review those decisions. What's a practitioner to do? In this webinar, Shawn Mechler, an attorney who regularly represents policyholders in UM/UIM cases and who authored the brief in the Irwin case, will discuss the question with Catherine L. Hanna, an attorney who represents insurance carriers.

Presented by: Catherine L. Hanna, Hanna & Plaut, L.L.P., Austin, Texas (Carrier) & Shawn M. Mechler, Crosley Law Firm, P.C., San Antonio, Texas (Policyholder)

About the Webinar: On June 30, 2019, The Texas Supreme Court issued opinions in two watershed cases long-awaited by insurance lawyers. In Barbara Technologies v. State Farm Lloyds and Ortiz v. State Farm Lloyds, the court provided much needed clarification of the interplay between insurance policy appraisal clauses and lawsuits involving breach of contract, bad faith, and Insurance Code violations, including of the Prompt Payment of Claims Act. Understanding the significance of these decisions is important for lawyers representing policyholders and carriers alike. This webinar sponsored by the Insurance Law Section of the State Bar of Texas, and featuring prominent lawyers from each side of the docket, will explain the holdings of these cases and their implications for practitioners.

Presented by: William J. Chriss, Chair, Insurance Law Section, Corpus Christi, Texas (Policyholder) & Lisa A. Songy, Immediate Past Chair, Insurance Law Section, Dallas, Texas (Carrier)

About the Webinar: Jeff Raizner will talk about issues deriving from Hurricane Harvey as it relates to 3 main types of potential claims that we'll see play out in litigation over the next few years and how they correlate with each other. First, there are the inverse condemnation claims for people affected by the Addicks and Barker dam releases and the various actions that have been filed with the Court of Federal Claims. We'll give an overview on the status of the litigation and a brief case law overview on federal takings. Next will be windstorm claims that property owners may have under a commercial property or homeowners policy, how the recent changes to the Texas Insurance Code will play into future litigation, the benefits of consolidating litigation, and lessons from Ike. And finally, there will be a brief discussion on how litigation over flood claims differ from litigation under the Texas Insurance Code related to windstorm claims, set against the backdrop of the various NFIP policies vs. private policies. Presented by: Jeffrey L. Raizner, Raizner Slania LLP, Houston, Texas
