Declaratory Judgment actions are also a common feature in coverage disputes. This ACCC Pop Up Dialogue will discuss some recent developments in removal/remand law, and strategic considerations from both the policyholder and insurer perspective, as well as a pending case before the 9th Circuit addressing whether a counterclaim for bad faith in a declaratory judgment action is compulsory (thus requiring mandatory jurisdiction) or contingent (allowing the federal court to exercise its discretionary authority to abstain).

Join Reed Smith partner, Jim Cooper, for this webinar "Federal Removal and Remand Issues in Coverage Cases."
