The Pennsylvania Superior Court has declined to extend the "notice-prejudice" rule found in occurrence policies to claims-made insurance policies. The court ruled that insurer Lloyds and Columbia Casualty did not have to indemnify ACE American for a bad faith claim of over $37 million because ACE American did not comply with the policy's heightened notice requirements for claims over $4 million. And in another ruling, the court overturned a revocation of a prominent Atlanta attorney's pro hac vice status.
