STRATEGIES FOR DEALING WITH FRAUD AND RESCISSION CLAIMS

MAJ PLAINTIFF MEMBERS ONLY

Co-Moderators:  Amicus Committee Chair Rebecca Walsh, Reiter & Walsh PC, Bloomfield Hills and Amicus Team Member Bob June, Law Offices of Robert June PC, Ann Arbor


"Fraud and rescission claims have become favorites of the insurance industry, and there are at least ten cases with applications for leave to appeal pending before the Michigan Supreme Court right now.  The MAJ Amicus Team has been actively monitoring these cases, and we will tell you what we’ve learned in this webinar.  If you have a case where the insurer is claiming that coverage should be voided due to some type of misrepresentation, you won’t want to miss it." - Co-Moderator & Amicus Team Member Bob June, Law Offices of Robert June PC, Ann Arbor


"This was an excellent and practical update on issues that have been coming up with increasing frequency in my practice." - Sam Pietsch, Johnson Law
