The Moody Blues

$30 for MBA members | $50 non-members

The recent Moody decision upended the long-held view that Oregonians cannot sue their insurance company for bad faith in first-party (e.g., fire loss) cases. This decision has the potential to create uncertainty in Oregon insurance law for a lengthy period. Portland attorneys Bob Bonaparte, Bonaparte & Bonaparte, and Robert May, Kilmer Voorhees & Laurick PC, will give the policyholder’s and the insurer’s perspective as to how the Moody decision has changed insurance litigation and what the future holds for a policyholder’s legal remedies against their insurance company. 

There is a limited amount of space for in-person attendance. There is also an option to attend virtually.
