The Massachusetts Supreme Court rejected application of famously broad commercial general liability policy "in for one, in for all" duty-to-defend standard to title insurance policies, limiting title insurers’ defense exposure and leaving insureds holding the tab to defend against claims not covered by their title insurance policies. Jessica Meyer, a partner at Lindquist & Vennum, provided an expert analysis published in Law360 which discusses a pair of cases that challenges the scope of a title insurer’s duty to defend and the Massachusetts Supreme Court decision to twice reject the blanket application of the commonplace adage that “the duty to defend is broader than the duty to indemnify” standard title insurance policies.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
