This CLE webinar will discuss and explore the mechanics of what's been called the bad faith "set-up" in insurance litigation. Both first-party and third-party claim scenarios will be reviewed and detailed, along with many of the tactics commonly associated with set-up allegations. The program will also analyze recent case law in different jurisdictions addressing this controversial issue.
Insurer counsel must be able to identify and avoid bad faith set-up situations. Counsel for claimants and policyholders meanwhile must be cognizant of the relevant case law, insurer tactics in response, plus recent cases that simply reject the concept of the set-up at all.
Listen as our authoritative panel of insurance practitioners discusses this important and evolving topic and the high stakes litigation that often ensues, analyzing recent case law in different states. Our panel will explain the tactics used in, methods of, and red flags indicating, so-called "bad faith set-up" through first-party and third-party scenarios.
