  • Description
    Hear from the attorney who successfully represented the Medical Malpractice Joint Underwriting Association of Rhode Island in their appeal before the New Jersey Supreme Court in the famous DeMarco vs. Stoddard case which effectively established that a medial malpractice policy procured via fraud can and should be rescinded ab initio. As a result of this decision, the insurer has no obligation to defend or indemnify the doctor. The landslide decision was the result of extensive examination of choice of law, reformation, recession, fraud and compulsory malpractice coverage in both New Jersey, where the malpractice occurred, and in Rhode Island, where the policy was issued. This CLE course will discuss the details of the case and its intricacies and well as its impact on insurers, professionals and plaintiffs in New Jersey.
