R. Bruce Barze Jr., partner in the firm’s Birmingham, Ala., office and member of the Insurance Practice Group, co-authored the Alabama section of the DRI’s Insurance Bad Faith: A Compendium of State Law. The publication addresses the latest developments on topics including theories of liability, damages, lack of coverage, procedural issues including stays and severing claims, and an insurer’s defenses. The Compendium was written by leading attorneys across the nation who specialize in insurance defense and coverage and were selected based upon the breadth and depth of their experience and knowledge in defending against bad faith actions within their respective area. The resource is published by the DRI, a leading organization of defense attorneys and in-house counsel that provides access to resources and tools for their members.
