‘Bad faith’ bill advances in Fla. Senate

Thu Mar 24th, 2011 on     Bad Faith Insurance,    

Proposed legislation that would substantially change existing insurance law barely made it out of the Judiciary Committee of the Florida State Senate this week. For some members of the committee, the bad faith provision of Senate Bill 1592 is especially troubling. The bill is supposed to encourage settlements “in a fair and objective manner,” according to the sponsor. Opponents, however, say the bill, in effect, is killing an ant with an elephant.
