Legally Speaking with Michael Mulligan
Deck litigation, an estate without a will, and criminal jury trials almost back to normal

Legally Speaking with Michael Mulligan

This week on Legally Speaking with Michael Mulligan:Twenty-five years ago, a man and his family moved into a home they had built in the Highlands with only a temporary occupancy permit. A final occupancy permit was never obtained, and the lack of compliance was noted on title. As his wife passed away and his children had moved out, the homeowner decided it was time to sell the home. The homeowner hired a contractor to complete some repairs including work on some badly weathered decks. The agreement to do the work was oral and the scope of the project changed several times. The contractor was asked to replace two smaller decks completely but, to save money, only replace the decking on a large main deck. The contractor pointed out to the homeowner that the structure of the main deck was rotten but agreed to continue replacing only the decking.When the home was listed for sale, a building inspector was called by a real-estate agent and several deficiencies were noted, including the rotten main deck. The homeowner was upset that the building inspector had attended and demanded that the contractor replace the main deck as his own expense. The contractor refused because he had only been hired to replace the decking and litigation ensued. Following a three-day trial, the judge concluded that while the contractor wasn't responsible for the full cost of replacing the main deck, he shouldn't have proceeded with replacing the decking given the rotten structure. The contractor was ordered to pay for the wasted time and decking material. Because the homeowner sued in Supreme Court, seeking the full cost of a new main deck, and was awarded only $5,175, he is unlikely to receive costs that would ordinarily be awarded to a successful party because the amount awarded is within the jurisdiction of Small Claims Court. The legal costs of the three-day trial are likely to have been substantially more that the amount awarded. The contractor represented himself at trial. Also on the show, the BC Court of Appeal resolved a dispute over an estate that occurred because the deceased didn't have a valid will. The BC Wills, Estates and Succession Act has provisions that deal with who should receive an estate when someone dies without a will. If someone has a spouse and no descendants, the estate passes to the spouse. The central issue on the appeal was whether the man who had lived with the deceased was her spouse. The Wills, Estates and Succession Act provides that when someone is in a “marriage like relationship” for two years prior to someone's death is their spouse. There are a variety of factors that courts have looked at to decide if a relationship is “marriage like”.The trial judge focused on the fact that the man and woman didn't engage in a conjugal relation and concluded that the man wasn't a spouse. The Court of Appeal disagreed and pointed out that there should not be a checklist of factors and that relationships are diverse.  The man shared a bed with the deceased for three years prior to her death. He took her to hundreds of medical appointments, did the grocery shopping, they shared meals and celebrations together and he testified that he loved her. While, ultimately, the result is likely to have been in accordance with the deceased woman's wished, several years or litigation and uncertainty could have been avoided if she had prepared a proper will.

In a very grim turn of events, Roe v. Wade was overturned by SCOTUS last week. For the 90th episode of Private Parts Unknown, we're going to hold space for that grieving process — and also hear directly from the people litigating the case and an organization at the forefront of the pro-choice movement about what this means, how we got here, and what's to come. Host Courtney Kocak gives her reaction to Friday news and shares her personal experience with abortion. Then we talk through the biggest takeaways from Friday's press conference where the Center for Reproductive Rights and Mississippi Center for Justice discussed the devastating ruling in the U.S. Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, with clips from the following speakers: Nancy Northup, President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights Julie Rikelman, Senior Director of U.S. Litigation at the Center for Reproductive Rights Hillary Schneller, Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights Robert McDuff, Mississippi Center for Justice For more from The Center for Reproductive Rights: Follow them on Instagram @reprorights Follow them on Twitter @ReproRights Check out their website reproductiverights.org Background: On Friday, June 24th, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a Mississippi law that bans abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, overturning the constitutional right to an abortion as protected under Roe v. Wade, which determined that every person has the right to end a pregnancy before viability—typically around 23-24 weeks. As a result of this ruling, about half the states in the country are expected to take immediate action to ban or severely restrict abortion. This case was first filed in March 2018 by the Center for Reproductive Rights on behalf of Jackson Women's Health Organization, the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi. The lawsuit aimed to block the state's ban on abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The ban was struck down by a federal district court and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. The state of Mississippi then asked the Supreme Court to hear the case, and arguments were held in December 2021. Private Parts Unknown is a proud member of the Pleasure Podcast network.

In this episode we discuss reducing corporate risk caused by laxity, inattention, misconduct, unethical behavior, or even illegal activities by people and organizations in your supply chain. Often these things are what happen when people are under pressure. They may feel pressure to bend rules to hit sales targets, or they feel significant competitive pressure. Shareholders demand a return on investments which puts pressure on chief executives who pass the pressure down the line.  Pressure builds when budgets are cut and fewer resources are available to maintain the necessary vigilance to remain compliant with often complex and changing regulations. Or, pressure comes from within, from the pressure of simple greed behind conspiracies to control markets at the expense of smaller competitors, consumers, workers, innovation, and the health of the market itself. Our guests also talk about these issues in the context of new pressures on corporations to demonstrate they are being responsible global citizens by implementing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) programs. This means making business decisions not solely on the profit potential, but on what harm or good these decisions may cause. We look at these issues through two lenses. One lens is that of a professional operating inside a company to ensure the integrity of its supply chain. The other lens is that of a professional who advises companies on legal and business issues across markets. It's also our first two-act episode. In Act 1 we discuss the conduct of a fictitious airline that is marketing itself as a green company. Its competitors are crying foul, and by that I mean suing them. Here we discuss the ESG movement, and the compliance and competition law implications.  In Act 2 a fictitious semiconductor manufacturer that is  using its considerable market power to trounce competitors, raise prices, and hamper innovation. In this act we discuss combatting global monopolies in supply chains. My guests are: Travis Miller, General Counsel at Assent Compliance Inc. and Director of Assent Compliance USA. Travis is author of Supply Chain Compliance Laws and Regulations, published by the American Bar Association. He has implemented software enabled supply chain risk management programs for more than 600 world's largest manufacturers. Assent is the leader in supply chain sustainability management solutions.Dan Mogin is co-founding and managing partner of MoginRubin LLP, a leading boutique law firm that focuses on antitrust law and other complex business disputes.

On June 23, 2022, the Supreme Court decided New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen. In a 6-3 decision, the Court struck down New York’s handgun licensing law that required New Yorkers to demonstrate a “proper cause” in order to be granted a license to carry a pistol or revolver in public. The petitioners, Brandon Koch and Robert Nash, were denied licenses to carry a firearm in public after listing their generalized interest in self-defense as the reason for seeking the license. New York denied their license application because a generalized interest in self-defense failed to satisfy the state’s proper cause requirement. Both men sued, claiming that New York had violated their Second Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment rights in doing so. A district court dismissed their claims, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit affirmed.Justice Thomas delivered the opinion of the Court, in the first major case on firearms regulation that the Court has considered in over a decade.Please join our legal expert to discuss the case, the legal issues involved, and the implications for the future of firearm regulation in America.

The Florida Insurance Roundup from Lisa Miller & Associates

Play Episode Listen Later Jun 23, 2022 35:32


The Florida Legislature in a May special session passed a series of reforms to help stabilize a property insurance market that has seen a growing number of carriers stop writing business or becoming insolvent.  Homeowners rates keep growing by double-digits and coverage is increasingly difficult to obtain. Former Florida Deputy Insurance Commissioner Lisa Miller talks with a lawmaker who was one of the handful of leaders behind the reforms and the head of a litigation analytics firm on whether the two new laws will help re-right the marketplace and lower homeowners rates - and what further reform is most needed next. Show NotesFlorida's newest property insurance and consumer reforms build on legislation passed in 2019 and 2021.  The two new laws (SB 2-D & SB 4-D) target excessive litigation, contractor solicitation abuse, and provide $2 billion in no-cost reinsurance coverage to carriers to improve the affordability and availability of insurance coverage.  More than 12 companies have stopped writing new business since January.  Another seven companies have become insolvent since 2019 - six in just the past 12 months.  “This was a matter of first aid to save a dying patient, which was Florida's property insurance market but there's absolutely still more to do,” said Representative David Smith (R-Winter Springs) who supported the two bills that became law and took effective immediately on May 26, 2022.  “There are some homeowners that the legislation is going to help immediately.  But longer term, I think homeowners will see lower rates and an impact of the rates going up less because of the stabilization of the market….we're on the right track.”According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners' data, as reported by state Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier, Florida has 9% of all homeowners insurance claims in the US yet has 79% of all homeowners insurance claims lawsuits.  The number of property insurance lawsuits in the state has increased 363% in the past nine years.  The current excesses are driven by fraudulent roof claims.  “A lot of the new measures are litigation related with the intent that either the laws will reduce the lawsuit amounts or reduce the cost of each lawsuit to the insurance industry, which would then translate to lower insurance premiums for Floridians,” said Wesley Todd, CEO of CaseGlide, a Tampa-based litigation analytics and software firm serving the insurance industry.  He noted the real question is exactly when rates will come down given the reforms will take time to be reflected in renewal policies over the coming months.  Insurance companies and their reinsurers will then want to see “years of data” that suggests litigation costs are under control.  “I believe that lawmakers still have one more thing left to do, which is get rid of the attorney fees statute, which is the structure that incentivizes attorneys to sue insurance companies.  I think until they do that, we won't actually start to see rates for Floridians decrease.”Florida's attorney fees statute (627.428 f.s.) requires an insurance company pay attorney fees when the policyholder prevails in a lawsuit against the company.  It has helped in catastrophes such as 1992's devastating Hurricane Andrew, to encourage representation “so that consumers would have a level playing field,” host Miller said.  “What has happened is that there are contractors who use that statute to their own benefit and will have their favorite partner, a plaintiff lawyer, and they become a team, once the consumer is kind of marginalized, if you will.”Rep. Smith said the new reforms prohibit awards of attorney fees to contractors or other assignees of an Assignment of Benefits (AOB) contract.  “Again, we've got to do more.  And the legislature never wants to deny the consumer, that homeowner the ability to get an attorney and be represented and get their day in court,” he said.  While Florida has weather issues to deal with that can impact insurance rates, “it's the litigation costs that are driving these rates up and why reinsurance companies don't want to take the actuarial risk of having all this litigation in Florida.  It's not the hurricanes they fear, it's the trial lawyer,” Rep. Smith said.Todd agreed and said the “surgical approach” the legislature rightfully utilized in the 2019 and 2021 reforms was meant to solve the litigation problem without getting rid of the attorney fees statue, but that hasn't worked.  “If we put a lot of loopholes and obstacles in front of the plaintiff attorneys, but they get paid to jump through those loopholes because they get paid for all their attorney fees, then are they really obstacles?  They're things that actually create more revenue for the attorneys because they're being paid to jump through hoops,” Todd argued.“It's not the $35,000 roof that is the burden on the insurance company,” added Rep. Smith.  “It's the $150,000 or $200,000 in attorney fees that they get paid.  That's what creates the litigation risk.”  He discussed his idea of creating a blue ribbon commission to meet outside the time constraints of the legislature's annual 60-day session and five weeks of prior committee meetings to collect data, benchmark other states' efforts, and “to get everybody that has a vested interest in solving the problem to everybody that's part of the problem to come together to be part of the solution,” Rep. Smith said.  In the meantime, Senator Jim Boyd (R-Bradenton) who chairs the Insurance and Banking Committee is expected to hold workshops this summer to provide more information and data that some lawmakers complained they didn't have during the special session.Host Miller and her guests also discussed what wasn't in the new reform laws: Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, the state-created and taxpayer-backed “insurer of last resort.”  Its policy count is rapidly approaching one million as private insurance companies have gone insolvent or shed policies because of underwriting losses.  It under-market rates and growing policy count burden will subject the rest of Florida's policyholders across almost all insurance lines (including automobile & surplus lines) to pay a special assessment if Citizens runs out of money to pay claims, as it did during the spate of 8 hurricanes during the 2004-2005 season.Host Miller agreed with both of her guests that the legislature needs to eliminate the attorney fees statute.  She said lawmakers should also go beyond the roof deductible option that consumers can access as part of the new law and instead require actual cash value for roof replacement as 40 other states do.  She also advocates for elimination of AOB contracts and reform of the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund that could save homeowners an estimated average $150 a year on their premium.Links and Resources Mentioned in this EpisodeCaseGlideRepresentative David SmithSB 2-D & SB 4-D (bills covering the 2022 reforms)Final Special Session 2022 Florida Legislature Bill Watch (Lisa Miller & Associates)Florida Statutes section 627.428 (on attorney fees)Top 20 Attorneys Filing Property Insurance Lawsuits - 2022 Q1 (Florida Department of Financial Services, April 2022)Florida Insurance Industry's Litigation, 2013-2021 (Citizens Property Insurance Corporation)Top 10 Florida Domestic Insurers Net Income Losses (from Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, March 2022)Private Insurance Industry Cumulative Rate Filings 2020-2021 (from Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, March 2022)Florida's 2019 AOB Reform (HB 7065) (Lisa Miller & Associates)Florida's 2021 Litigation & Solicitation Reform (SB 76) (Lisa Miller & Associates)Florida's 2022 Litigation Reform & Consumer Protections (SB 2-D & SB 4-D) (Lisa Miller & Associates)CFO/Department of Financial Services Insurance Consumer Helpline (1-877-693-5236)** The Listener Call-In Line for your recorded questions and comments to air in future episodes is 850-388-8002 or you may send email to LisaMiller@LisaMillerAssociates.com **The Florida Insurance Roundup from Lisa Miller & Associates, brings you the latest developments in Property & Casualty, Healthcare, Workers' Compensation, and Surplus Lines insurance from around the Sunshine State.  Based in the state capital of Tallahassee, Lisa Miller & Associates provides its clients with focused, intelligent, and cost conscious solutions to their business development, government consulting, and public relations needs.  On the web at www.LisaMillerAssociates.com or call 850-222-1041.  Your questions, comments, and suggestions are welcome!  Date of Recording 6/22/2022.

The thing I love most about the group is that I get to meet great professionals from all over the country.  One of those individuals who I met early on was Frank Rudewicz.  If you meet Frank, it won't take you long to like him. He is the consummate professional who truly enjoys what he does. He is clearly invested in the success of those around him. And from his days at the FBI, he has great stories. I invited Frank on the show because Frank has deep experience doing investigations.  Since some of my audience are lawyers looking for alternatives to the traditional practice of law, I thought it would be great to have Frank on as a guest. In this episode, Frank and I talk about how he got to where he is today. He shares some thoughts about why lawyers make great investigators and offers some tips for anyone thinking about making a transition. Frank Rudewicz specializes in forensics and litigation support at the accounting firm CliftonLarsonAllen.  He has more than 30 years of experience conducting domestic and international investigations for fraud, forensic accounting, asset tracing and other litigation-related matters.

Among the legal and regulatory avenues one might follow to mitigate the impact of racism, most of us would look to various manifestations of discrimination law in  employment, lending, real estate, education, healthcare, voting rights, and other categories. When presented in those contexts, the anti-racism objectives are clear.  But there is at least one area where the primary goal is capitalism, and following right along would be the potential to reduce racial disparities. That would be antitrust law. And that would be amazing.  There are several federal laws and many state laws that prohibit anticompetitive behavior.  At the top of the heap is the Sherman Antirust Act of 1890, which outlaws illegal monopolies and anticompetitive tactics, conspiracies to restrain trade, cartels and syndicates.  But what do wages, including those paid to minorities, have to do with antitrust? What about no-poach agreements, whereby groups of companies agree not to hire employees away from each other?  The answer is "quite a lot." Listen to my interview with Eric Cramer, Chairman of Berger Montague and co-chair of the firm's antitrust department, a team that handles antitrust class actions across the country involving a variety of industries.  Eric and the firm are responsible for winning numerous significant settlements for clients -- a total value that now exceeds $3 billion. His recent focus has been representing workers who allege their employers' anticompetitive practices  suppressed their pay. Recipient of numerous accolades and awards that include terms like titan, elite, thought leader, visionary, and lawyer of the year, Eric is a summa cum laude graduate of Princeton University where he earned membership in Phi Beta Kappa, and a cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School. Listen to what he had to say about this important subject. This podcast is the audio companion to the Journal on Emerging Issues in Litigation. The Journal is a collaborative project between HB Litigation Conferences and the Fastcase legal research family, which includes Full Court Press, Law Street Media, and Docket Alarm.
