While this weblog has been on another of its practice-compelled hiatuses [hiati?], others have been vigorously pursuing the profusion of insurance issues flowing from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. For those who have not been following these stories and who want to catch up, here is a quick catalog of legal webloggers who are on the case.
I'm providing pointers to posts that I particularly recommend, but your best approach with all of these weblogs would be to click through to the main page and just start scrolling downward in order to read everything these gentlemen have posted.
- Doug Stratton's Insurance Defense Blog, while headquartered in the vicinity of the District of Columbia, has been turning its attention south to good effect:
- Mississippi Coverage Suits Still Brewing [10/4/05]
- History of Flood Insurance [10/8/05]
- Doug Simpson's Unintended Consequences is self-described as "weblog of research on the collision of law, networks and disruptive technologies," and the collision of wind, water and lawyers is proving plentifully disruptive:
- Martin Grace (with the able assistance of Ty Leverty) on the RiskProf weblog has been musing and commenting most productively:
- How to Destroy the Insurance Industry II [9/15/05]
- A Change is Needed [10/5/05]
Bonus Material: Martin was among the panelists for the American Enterprise Institute's October 3 program on Katrina's Liability Implications, moderated by Ted Frank of Overlawyered and PointofLaw.com. The link leads to the main page for the event, with further links to written materials and video.
