Tom Werlein, associate counsel for Sentry Insurance, joins Timely Notice for a discussion of Sections 3, 4, and 21 of the ALI Restatement of the Laws of Liability Insurance. Tom explains the implications of a modified plain-meaning rule, the newfound importance of custom practice and usage, and whether a subjective belief by an insured is appropriate for policy interpretation.
