Three's Company? Navigating A Liability Insurer's Duty to Defend, Settle, and Indemnify and Conflicts Arising in Tri-Partite Relationships
Friday, September 27, 2019 | 2:15 PM - 3:30 PM

This panel is designed for in-house counsel at both corporate policyholders and insurance companies, as well as litigators (both plaintiff’s and insurance defense counsel), and insurance coverage practitioners (on both policyholder and insurer sides). The panelists will discuss the contours of insurers' duties under general liability, directors and officers liability, and errors and omissions liability policies as well as conflicts of interest issues that arise while an insurer is defending its insured in betthe-company litigation. The panelists will also focus on the duty of good faith in both claims handling and settlement considerations and how those issues often play out in practice.

Let's Talk About Sex: LGBT Employment Discrimination at the Supreme Court
Saturday, September 28, 2019 | 2:15 PM - 3:30 PM

Scores of federal courts have found that sexual orientation discrimination and gender identity discrimination are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964. Now, the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to hear three cases involving these questions in the October 2019 term. The Supreme Court's review of these cases will have a profound impact on the rights of LGBTQ people in employment and other contexts across the country, as well as large implications regarding the meaning of sex discrimination in employment. In this session, attendees will learn about these momentous cases and the jurisprudence regarding SO/GI discrimination as forms of sex discrimination from practitioners deeply immersed in these issues.
