Attorney Amy Wooten will be a featured panelist at the 2022 North Carolina Bar Association Insurance Law Section Program and Annual Meeting on Friday, January 28.
The one-day CLE, Understanding Common Insurance Law Issues and Continuing COVID Disputes, is designed to unpack litigation issues in the context of insurance law and includes sessions on the economic loss doctrine, bad faith, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.
Amy is participating in the last session of the day, an interactive panel discussion on the Tripartite Relationship in Insurance Defense. She will be joined by:
- William Bulfer, Teague Campbell Dennis & Gorham LLP
- C. Douglas Maynard Jr., Law Offices of C. Douglas Maynard Jr. PLLC
- Michael Medford, Manning Fulton & Skinner PA
- Khrystyne Rasmussen, Butler Weihmuller Katz Craig LLP
- O. Craig Tierney Jr., Brown Crump Vanore & Tierney PLLC
Moderates David Brown and Ted Smyth will lead panelists through a hypothetical scenario involving an explosion at a hotel, with both a first-party property loss and a third-party tort action arising out of the explosion. Each attorney will role-play as counsel for various parties involved in the aftermath of the explosion — including representation of the policyholder, first-party coverage counsel, the insurance agent, plaintiff and defense counsel in the tort action, and coverage counsel for the defendant. While strategically representing their respective interests, the participants encounter several contentious points and address ethical issues that arise as they navigate to the hypothetical conclusion.
