Kathy Maus from Butler Weihmuller Katz Craig along with co-presenters Robin Donoian and Michael A. Hamilton presented in Scottsdale, AZ at the IADC Midyear Meeting on the topic of “What has Eight Corners and is Not a Cube? Issues Arising from the Duty to Defend” on February 21, 2017. 

What are the issues that arise most frequently in defending insureds in third party claims? This program covered them, including the “eight corners rule” and its exceptions, defending under a reservation of rights, withdrawal from the defense, the insurer’s rights/obligations concerning declaratory relief, retention of independent counsel, trigger theories and overlapping coverage, refusal of defense by the insured, and waiver and coverage by estoppel.
