SJC Addresses the Enforceability of Settlements Entered Without Insurers’ Consent
Boston Bar Journal
Austin Moody authored a Boston Bar Journal article on the recent Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's (SJC) decision that addressed three issues that arise when an insurer recognizes its duty to defend its insured, does so under a reservation of rights and then brings a separate action seeking a declaratory judgment that it owes no duty to indemnify its insureds. Read Austin's analysis on Commerce Ins. Co. v. Szafaworicz in the Boston Bar Journal.
