2014 House Bill 5523: Expand grounds for suing insurance companies
  1. Introduced by Rep. Ellen Lipton (D) on May 6, 2014, to establish a legal presumption that an insurance company has acted in bad faith if it violates a long list of specific “unfair and prohibited trade practices” in an existing law, meaning the burden of proof would be on the insurer to prove otherwise in a lawsuit authorized by House Bill 5021.
    • Referred to the House Insurance Committee on May 6, 2014.
