BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Third-party litigation funding bill advances


Missouri’s Special Committee on Litigation Reform has passed HB 2771, the Consumer Litigation Funding Model Act, which would put in place regulations for third-party litigation funding, the American Property Casualty Insurance Association, which supports the legislation, said Thursday.

HB 2771 would require all participants in litigation financing arrangements to disclose their existence – including to the insurers of individuals filing suit – as part of discovery during personal injury litigation.

Hilary Segura, APCIA’s assistant vice president for state government relations, said in a statement the bill “addresses a growing and extremely concerning legal trend that puts vulnerable individuals who file a lawsuit at risk of being taken advantage of” by third-party litigation financiers.
