Title Insurance Developments

University of Oklahoma
Professor Barlow Burke, John S. Myers and Alvina Reckman Myers Scholar
American University, Washington College of Law
Join us on April 8 for a discussion of recent developments in title insurance, featuring the country’s two leading academic voices on the law of title insurance.
Prof. Joyce Palomar, the author of Title Insurance Law (Thomson Reuters), will discuss the effect of a full credit bid or failure to pursue a deficiency judgment on a mortgage lender’s title insurance coverage. Her remarks will discuss the full credit bid rule, whether the rule should apply to title insurance policies, and whether a full credit bid prevents the lender from recovering on a Closing Protection Letter.
Prof. Barlow Burke, the author of The Law of Title Insurance (Aspen Law & Business), will discuss the “in for one, in for all” rule (the rule that commercial liability insurers assume a broad duty to defend their policyholders and, if an insurer has a duty to defend one of the underlying counts in a complaint, the insurer must also defend the remaining counts), and recent judicial inroads on the rule in the context of title insurance coverage.
