Welcome to The Briefing – a legal podcast by Smith Freed Eberhard. We will provide insight and analysis on new Oregon and Washington case law, litigation innovation and technology, the insurance marketplace, and firm news.
In this week’s episode, Cliff Wilson, a Partner in the Oregon office, discusses Smith Freed Eberhard’s latest Legal Alert, “Oregon Supreme Court Allows UM/UIM Stacking Among Multiple Policies Issued by Same Insurer”. In this case, the Oregon Supreme Court determined that an anti-stacking provision in an uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) policy was unenforceable, holding that any attempt to limit the amount of UM/UIM coverage from multiple applicable policies to the policy limit of just one of them through an “other similar coverage” provision was less favorable to the insured than allowed by Oregon’s statutory UM/UIM model policy language.
