Let me once again recommend the Lexis Insurance Law Center

Look, I’m not saying this just because I’m on the advisory board, and I’m not saying this just because I have this post up about legal blogging, and I am not saying this just because I am as amazed as anyone that a behemoth like LexisNexis is beginning to understand the interactive possibilities of free internet content.  I am saying it because the Lexis Insurance Law Center is turning into a very good product, a primary source for insurance news, opinion and perspective.  There’s some pretty good stuff there, and it’s getting better all the time.  It’s going to take some convincing on my part to get folks to turn loose and "let their freak flag fly," as the comment to my ILC post says, but I am nothing if not relentless. 

UPDATE:  Thanks to Walter Olson at Point of Law for the link to my ILC post, and to Kevin O’Keefe at Lexblog for the same.

    I agree the Vermont case is somewhat odd, but believe the judgment to be correct. The problem with EPC, and I have lived with it in California my whole career, is the incorrect focus on the “triggering or moving cause.” That focus almost always results in ignoring the most important cause of the loss. After a few wrong headed decisions, the California Supreme Court finally made clear that predominant means most important, not necessarily the “moving cause.” I tell my associates to ask themselves if you put 100 people in the house and watched the loss and had to describe in one sentence, what would they say. When a landslide destroys a home, the average person would not talk about surface water or subsurface water, though clearly water triggers almost all landslide. The average person would say a landslide destroyed your house. That is predominant cause.
