Are You Covered? CSTCA Urges Muncipal Counsel to Review Insurance Policies

It has been brought to CSTCA’s attention that MIAA does not consider municipal counsel ‘public officials’ for coverage purposes under the standard municipal insurance policy. MIAA has taken the position that municipalities must procure separate policy for attorneys who serve as municipal counsel in order to insure coverage if counsel is sued as a public official.  CSTCA urges its members to review any municipal insurance policies to ensure that attorneys holding positions with the municipality would be covered if sued in their official capacity by a third party.
