PLUS Midwest Chapter Spring Educational Seminar, May 22, 2018 – Jason Taylor (organizing)/Jessica Kull (speaking)

Jessica N. Kull will be presenting at the PLUS Midwest Chapter May 2018 Educational Seminar at the Chicago Cultural Center on May 22, 2018.  This seminar, co-hosted with the Association of Lloyd’s Brokers, will focus on the new and growing exposures municipalities, their police departments, and their insurers face in light of societal reactions to recent police involved shootings and high profile reversals of past convictions.  The seminar will also take a deeper look at coverage for high speed pursuits as well as other risks municipalities contend with in a time when public opinion is shaped in social media and traditional media long before a case goes to trial.  Jessica will present the attorney perspective on insurance coverage considerations in high exposure wrongful conviction cases involving cities and municipalities, including number of occurrences, who qualifies as an insured, the triggers of coverage, punitive damages, and coverage for statutory indemnity and attorney’s fees.  More details on the event and registration instructions can be found at
