Connecticut courts addressed a wide range of insurance coverage and practice issues in 2013. the supreme Court ruled on bad faith claims investigation, liability coverage for defective workmanship, the effect of a policyholder’s settlement of partially-covered claims, the defense of additional insureds, and the application of the “make whole” doctrine in subrogation. the supreme Court also touched on an issue that has received broad national attention when it held that the payment of undisclosed contingent commissions to insurance brokers did not violate Connecticut’s unfair insurance and trade practices acts.
