Carr Maloney member Jim Steele was published in Inside Counsel. His article on June 6, 2013, “Maryland court rules that jury must know identity of insurance carrier” discusses Maryland’s intermediate appellate court, the Court of Special Appeals, ruling that that an insurance company’s identity must be disclosed to a jury in a breach of contract case arising out of the uninsured motorist provisions of an insurance policy. Davis et vir. v. Martinez, et al., examines the potential prejudice that defendants face when a jury knows that a claim may be covered by insurance, as well as the distinction between evidentiary matters and basic trial procedure.
