Mitch F. Crusto appears in two Times-Picayune articles

November 14, 2008

Rebecca Mowbray, insurance industry reporter for The Times-Picayune, featured College of Law professor Mitch F. Crusto in two articles. In the Aug. 27, 2008 article, “Insurers Use Federal Cash to Help Pay Claims,” Crusto was quoted as saying, “The most important point is that three years after the storm, thousands of people are still stuck in litigation, waiting for proper payment for their storm damage. Although the Louisiana Department of Insurance ran a mediation program after the 2005 storms that served 12,242 people, more needs to be done to resolve claims and get people paid.” The article is available here.

On Aug. 30, 2008, the article “Valued Policy Law is Opposed: Appeal Ruling Adds Competing Opinion,” included Crusto’s interview comments from the Louisiana Bar Journal. The article is available at here.

A letter to the editor of The Times-Picayune written by Crusto was also published on Apr. 13, 2008. “Court Takes the Lead on Tough Insurance Issue,” Re: “Court Says Policies Exclude Flood,” is available here.

Crusto presented “Personal Constitutional Rights in Troubled Waters II,” One Step Too Many, Louisiana Judicial Council, at the 14th Annual Jamaican Sunset CLE, in Negril, Jamaica, on Aug. 13, 2008. Crusto also presented “Reparations for African Americans: An Essential Remedy; Legally Viable or Racially Divisive,” at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools, 2008 Annual Meeting, in Palm Beach, Fla., on July 28, 2008.

On Feb. 21, 2008, Crusto visited the University of Miami and presented, as part of a visiting faculty lecture, “Unconscious Classism: Entity Equity for Sole Proprietors.”
