This year, The Fund and Old Republic National Title Insurance Company are leading the charge to support important legislation that will ensure Florida citizens have ready access to local title insurance agents, including attorney agents. As described in the February 2014 Concept, the need for this legislation was created by the Florida Supreme Court’s significant limitation of the economic loss rule and decades of precedent in its March, 2013 decision: Tiara Condominium Association, Inc. v. Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc., 110 So.3d 399 (Fla. 2013).
