Unobserved Heterogeneity, Experience Rating, And Insurance Demand, Levon Barseghyan, Francesca Molinari, Darcy Steeg Morris, Joshua C. Teitelbaum
Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works
Using data on claims experience in auto and home insurance, we estimate the variance-covariance matrix of unobserved heterogeneity in claim risk and explore how the demand for coverage would respond to multiline experience rating under different theories of risky choice. Our analysis sheds light on the potential for unpriced heterogeneity to distort the demand for insurance.

Brooklyn Journal of Corporate, Financial & Commercial Law
Privacy has come to the forefront of the technology world as third party hackers are constantly attacking companies for their customers’ data. With increasing instances of compromised customer information; the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has been bringing suit against companies for inadequate data security procedures. The FTC’s newfound authority to bring suit regarding cybersecurity breaches; based on the Third Circuit’s decision in FTC v. Wyndham Worldwide Corp.; is a result of inaction—Congress has been unable to pass sufficient cybersecurity legislation; causing the FTC to step in and fill the void in regulation.

Strategic Land Use Litigation: Pleading Around Municipal Insurance, 2016 Vanderbilt Law School
Strategic Land Use Litigation: Pleading Around Municipal Insurance, Christopher Serkin
Municipal insurance policies inevitably contain a curious exclusion of coverage for regulatory takings claims. Many courts have interpreted this exclusion broadly, applying it to all land-use litigation. Other courts have interpreted the exclusion narrowly. Both interpretations are problematic. The former is at odds with policy language and the normal rule that insurance policies are to be construed against the insurer. The latter creates an opportunity for plaintiffs to craft their pleadings explicitly to trigger or to avoid triggering the municipality’s insurance coverage. Plaintiffs seeking a quick settlement are well advised to plead around the exclusion so as to settle ...

Uncertain Costs, Unclear Benefits: China’S Social Insurance System And Foreign Workers, 2016 Boston College Law School
Uncertain Costs, Unclear Benefits: China’S Social Insurance System And Foreign Workers, Eric Chu
Boston College International and Comparative Law Review
China’s fairly recent implementation of a social security insurance scheme that includes foreign workers has generated unintended uncertainties and inconsistencies both for foreign companies in China and for Chinese companies working outside China, without generating clear benefits for foreign workers. This Note provides an overview of the new scheme, which requires, for the first time, all foreign workers and their employers to pay into the social security insurance system. Weaknesses in this new scheme include inconsistent implementation, scattered timelines, and incomplete information on coverage. In the face of these and other shortcomings, China should focus on the benefits of ...
The Mystery Of Mutual Insurers In Lawyers Professional Liability Insurance, 2016 University of Pennsylvania Law School
The Mystery Of Mutual Insurers In Lawyers Professional Liability Insurance, Tom Baker, Rick Swedloff
Large law firms in the U.S. rely heavily on lawyers-only mutual insurers to manage their malpractice risks. Yet, under classic economic theory, mutual insurers should not be able to compete with stock insurers, at least absent a market failure. Mutuals have less access to capital and thus less ability to spread risk. Also, mutuals demand much more law firm partner time. Our research into the lawyers’ professional liability (LPL) insurance market makes three contributions. First, while we find evidence consistent with the traditional explanations for mutual insurance—market failures related to moral hazard and adverse selection and a problem ...

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries
The Court considered three consolidated appeals from a district court judgment, pursuant to a jury verdict, and post-judgment orders awarding costs and denying a new trial in a personal injury action. While the Court addressed numerous issues, the following three questions comprised the bulk of the consolidated appeals: (1) whether an attorney may ask prospective jurors questions concerning a specific verdict amount to determine potential bias or prejudice; (2) whether repeatedly asking questions about that specific amount results in jury indoctrination warranting a mistrial; and (3) when a district court abuses its discretion in dismissing jurors for cause under Jitnan ...
Grain Producers Need To Consider Crop Insurance Options For Late Planting And Replanting, 2016 Iowa State University
Grain Producers Need To Consider Crop Insurance Options For Late Planting And Replanting, William M. Edwards
The frequent rains that have soaked Iowa this year have left many corn and soybean fields with areas where little or no production will be realized. Many producers are wondering what options they have under their multiple peril crop insurance policies.
Crop Insurance Has Some Changes For 2009, 2016 Iowa State University
Crop Insurance Has Some Changes For 2009, William M. Edwards
Crop insurance indemnity prices, guarantees and premiums were all at record levels for corn and soybeans in 2008. Current market conditions make it unlikely that those levels will be reached again in 2009, but they will still be attractive. The Risk Management Agency has announced indemnity prices of $4 per bushel for corn and $9.90 per bushel for soybeans for APH (yield) insurance guarantees for 2009, the second highest prices ever offered. Prices for revenue insurance policies will not be known until the end of February.

An Opening For Civil Rights In Health Insurance After The Affordable Care Act, Valarie K. Blake
Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice
Section 1557, the civil rights provision of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”), is unmatched in its reach, widely applying race, gender, disability, and age discrimination protections across all areas of healthcare. This Article will explore the value added of a civil rights approach to combating health insurance discrimination when combined with other ACA anti-discrimination efforts that were designed to regulate the health insurance market. It will emphasize the role that section 1557 can play in combatting healthcare disparities and will explore the utility of disparate impact and disparate treatment claims to those cases. Lastly, the Article will posit that two ...
Nfib V. Sebelius And The Individual Mandate: Thoughts On The Tax/Regulation Distinction, 2016 University of Michigan Law School
Nfib V. Sebelius And The Individual Mandate: Thoughts On The Tax/Regulation Distinction, Kyle D. Logue
Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review
When Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion of the Court in National Federation of Independent Businesses v. Sebelius (NFIB) explaining the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) minimum essential coverage provision (sometimes referred to as the individual mandate), he reasoned that the mandate—or, more precisely, the enforcement provision that accompanied the mandate (the Shared Responsibility Payment or SRP)—could be understood as a tax on the failure to purchase health insurance. According to this view, the enactment of the mandate and its accompanying enforcement provisions fell within Congress’s virtually unlimited power to “lay and collect ...
