"Thompson is a member of the Senate insurance committee but over the past year and a half he has rarely introduced bills pertaining to insurance or tort matters. The overwhelming majority of bills he proposed deal with strictly local matters or environmental concerns (he is chairman of the Environmental Conservation Committee). He has introduced 22 bills so far this year." Buffalo News, Sunday, May 9, 2010
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 Please report dead links or overruled or superseded case decisions to me by clicking here.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.
