Precedential Decisions

Index to Precedential Decisions

The Insurance Commissioner is providing two indexes to precedential decisions. The first index is simply a list of case names and numbers. By selecting the name, you can view the text of the decision. The second index is a topic index, with just the case names displayed. Again, by selecting the name, you can view the text of the decision.

This index is a dynamic document, reflecting the changing case law applicable in Department of Insurance proceedings. Decisions that are not on this list are not precedential and should not be cited or relied upon. As to those decisions that have only certain pages designated, only those pages are precedential. New decisions may be designated and added to the index at any time, while some decisions may be eliminated. The index has categories in which no decisions are currently designated as precedential. The Commissioner may designate precedential decisions in these categories at a later date.
