New York Expands Mandatory Disclosures of Insurance Coverage Information: Newly Enacted Law Requires New York State Court Defendants to Produce More Detailed Insurance InformationSullivan & Cromwell LLP - January 7, 2022
On December 31, New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed into law the Comprehensive Insurance Disclosure Act (the “Act”), which substantially increases the insurance-related information and documents that defendants must produce to all other parties in civil lawsuits in New York state court. The law went into effect immediately and provides that pending cases must come into compliance by March 1, 2022. In addition to requiring production of substantial documents and information related to insurance coverage, the new law contains a provision requiring prompt updates of disclosures throughout the litigation and until sixty days after the litigation terminates. The law also requires signed certifications by defendants and their counsel.
