Unless you've been a reader of this blog since its inception in April 2008, you may have missed a few of the 538 or so posts before this one. If that's the case, and you would like to find content related to why you found your way here in the first place, there are several ways to do so.
Recent posts can be viewed by either scrolling downward on the main page or by clicking on a title/link in the Recent Posts/Labels/Archives widget found in the upper right-hand corner of any page.
Searching for Content
What if you want to read more about a particular subject or topic? Try first clicking on the label of a topic that interests you appearing at the end of the post you just read. For example, at the end of my September 7, 2009 post you could click on the label "Graves Amendment", which would load all posts of this blog with that same label. There are 11 such posts as of today.
What if you want to read about a subject or topic that isn't labeled in the post you just read? Click the "Labels" tab of the Recent Posts/Labels/Archives widget found in the upper right-hand corner of any page and scroll down the list for something that interests you. If you don't find a label for that topic, try text-searching it in either of the two search bars on this blog: the first at the upper left-hand corner of this page next to the orange Blogger logo; and the second "Search This Blog & More" search bar about half-way down any page on the right-hand side. The latter is a custom text search engine that not only will search this blog, but will also search other blawgs, insurance resources and the web. Results are displayed in a tabbed format on the top of the page you're viewing. If you're looking for a particular case name or want to review blogged decisions from a particular judge, either text search method will do.
If you found something you want to share with others, there are two widgets embedded after each post to make it easier for you to do so. You can either roll over the button and choose your preferred method of sharing, or click on the symbol to email a link to the post.
If you'd like to subscribe to Coverage Counsel, there is an ever increasing number of ways of doing so. To get a weekly email of the prior week's postings, you can use the subscription widget that appears on the right-hand side of any page:
Just make sure to tell your IT people, if you have IT people, to add mail.feedblitz.com to your company's whitelist. Otherwise, add email@example.com to your contacts so the weekly emails get through.

I hope you found what you were looking for in this blog, and thanks for visiting. Come again.
Readers -- When the New York State Insurance Department became the Department of Financial Services on October 3, 2011, links on this blog to NYSID webpages were broken.
Since all old links resolve to a "Not Found" page with a www.dfs.ny.gov/ address, however, one needs only insert "insurance/" after the "...gov/" in the "Not Found" page address to get to the desired page.
Welcome to Coverage Counsel, where we hope you will find timely and useful information regarding New York state and federal insurance coverage cases and issues.
Coverage Counsel is brought to you by the law firm of MURA & STORM, PLLC with a main office in Buffalo, New York. To contact us, call (716) 855-2800 or email Roy Mura, the editor of this blawg.
(c) 2009. First, let me congratulate you on finding this disclaimer, all the way down here at the bottom of this page. You're either very thorough, or very bored. Or both.
Either way, this is where I tell you that what I post on this blog or blawg is not intended and should not be considered to be legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed either from your finding your way to these pages, posting comments, or receiving comments in reply. If you need or want legal advice, you're welcome to contact and retain me, especially if your question is one relating to insurance coverage. If quality and correctness are optional to you, however, just turn on a TV, open a newspaper, or take a drive along a nearby highway and jot the numbers down of lawyers who probably don't blawg but spend gobs and gobs more on advertising than I do.
Although I try my best to keep the material on these pages current, I cannot promise that all case decisions, statutes and hyperlinks will always be up-to-date. Same goes for content accuracy. I'm nearly, but not always, perfect. Please report dead links or overruled or superseded case decisions to me by clicking here.
Although comments are moderated, I take no responsibility for and do not endorse the viewpoints expressed by this blawg's commenters. The viewpoints and opinions I may myself express in this blawg from time to time are my own and do not necessarily reflect more than one-half of the official position of the law firm of Mura & Storm, PLLC. For the record, I respect all judges, named or unnamed in these posts, though not always their judicial acumen or composition. I reserve the right to revise my thinking and recant my occasional disagreement with the logic or language of a court's decision, especially if IAS matches me with any of the mildly maligned magistrates in one of my clients' litigated matters.
