On December 16, the SJC issued a decision on Rawan v. Continental Casualty, upholding consent-to-settle clauses in professional liability insurance policies and determining that an insurer did not violate Massachusetts’ bad faith statutes by honoring its insured’s refusal to settle a professional malpractice claim. During this brown bag lunch, Kristen M. Whittle of Barton Gilman, who wrote the amicus brief for the MassDLA with Derek M. Gillis and Alexandra L. Rotondo, will discuss this issue and the implications of the Court’s ruling on professional liability insurers and their insureds.
