Brian and Shant discuss the following cases:
CIGA v. Azar, Sec. of HHS: When Medicare has a primary claim against an insured
party and the insurer becomes insolvent, state-mandated CIGA steps in but as an
insolvency insurer not a secondary payor.
Kim v. United States: Two young boys fall victim to a deadly outcome when a tree
limb breaks loose while camping in Yosemite. Unfortunately for the family, the FTCA
bars claims deemed a discretionary function of federal officials.
Target Corp. v. Golden State Insurance: When an additional insurer seeks
indemnification, does the merit of a claim determine the outcome when the nature of
the claim is beyond the parameters of the indemnification agreement.
Ferra v. Loews Hollywood Hotel: A hotel bartender argues that compensation
provided to her for missed breaks should include the full value of the hours worked or
the premium, inclusive of non-discretionary bonuses and gratuities.
