Are new insurance laws constitutional?

December 28, 2011 10:37AM

A lawsuit filed this month in Miami alleges that a series of
newly-passed insurance regulations are unconstitutional, according to
the Sun Sentinel. Public adjuster Eduardo Rodriguez claims the parts of
the law that mean public adjusters cannot get paid until insurers make
an offer, and limits what they can charge, contravenes the state
constitution. The laws, contained in SB 408, apply to policies of
state-backed insurer Citizens Property Insurance. [Sun
