Host:

Regina B. Pettus, Vice President, Sr. Underwriting Executive, Genesis

Speakers:

Bill Wilt, President, Assured Research
Alan Zimmerman, Managing Director, Assured Research

Summary:

During this webinar, Assured Research provided an update on trends in economic and social inflation. Economic inflation, as Assured Research described, appears to be transitioning from "flexible" to "sticky" inflation, or in insurance vernacular, from 1st party to 3rd party lines of insurance. This webinar focused on trends in the major components of liability awards and in particular, pressures on medical inflation. An update was also provided on social inflation, which included recent data gathered that examined trends in the disposition of legal cases since the start of the pandemic. There is potentially good news here, as Assured Research shared, though the ingredients for a reacceleration of social inflation remain firmly in place.

Summary:

On July 6, 2016 a 28-year-old police officer from St. Anthony Village, Minnesota shot and killed Philando Castile during a traffic stop. The tragedy was captured live on a Facebook stream by Mr. Castile’s girlfriend, who was a passenger in the car along with her 4-year-old daughter.

While many of the facts surrounding this case were made public relatively quickly, perhaps less well-known are the effects of the shooting on the residents of St. Anthony Village and surrounding communities. What lessons did St. Anthony Village officials learn as they managed this crisis? Lessons that other mayors, city managers and public officials may want to consider as they face the troubling question “What if this happens in my community?”

We’ll explore these and other questions with our speakers during the webinar. Please join us for this sobering but critical exploration of a tragedy that continues to repeat itself in communities across our nation.

What's Next for Qualified Immunity?

Steven Leone

Over the last several weeks, the nation has been focused on the criminal trial and conviction of Derek Chauvin for the tragic death of George Floyd. Since George Floyd’s death nearly a year ago, police reform efforts have advanced with greater urgency. There are increasing calls to regulate the police and to hold them accountable. In years past, qualified immunity may have been an obscure legal doctrine arising in civil lawsuits against government officials. Not anymore. Qualified immunity is in the spotlight. So, what’s next for qualified immunity?

Facial Recognition - Is It Possible to Remain Anonymous?

Enhanced digital imagery, along with the development of artificial intelligence, has allowed for the increased use of facial recognition technology. However, these advancements have created new legal and ethical questions. Such questions are likely to be areas of rich debate for public entities, policymakers and the public. It makes us wonder if it is possible to remain anonymous in the age of facial recognition?
