2019 Maryland Legislation of Interest to Insurers
A Primer on Controversy: Restatement of the Law, Liability Insurance
In May 2018, the American Law Institute (ALI) approved the final version of a project initially launched in 2010 to summarize the principles of liability insurance law.
The ALI is a deliberative body established to promote the clarification and simplification of United States common law. The foremost way the ALI has sought to accomplish this goal over its 95-year existence has been through the creation of various Restatements of the Law, Model Codes, and Principles of Law. The ALI drafts Restatements to provide courts with guidance as to common law, corresponding statutes, and regulations so that the legal precedents set forth in the Restatement may be appropriately stated by the courts in their decisions.
