New Frontier In Florida

The excellent blog SunEthics has a recent decision of the Florida Third District Court of Appeal that is worth a look.

The case involves Great American assurance Company's use of a single law firm to defend the University of Florida and MagiCamp, which ran a summer swim camp for children on the UM campus.

The suit was brought by the parents of an injured child.

The court held that there is a disqualifying conlict between the two defendant clients as they blame each other for negligence.

A dissent states that "[t] he court today opens a new frontier in insurance litigation of benefit only to the legal profession."

According to the dissent, the case involves obnly a conflict among insureds and would affirm summary judgment to the insurancr company. (Mike Frisch)
