Insurance coverage attorney Amy Elizabeth Stewart’s book, Texas Insurance Coverage Litigation: The Litigator’s Practice Guide, has been revised with updates to include new insurance developments for 2020. The book, which has been published annually by Texas Lawyer Books since 2012, is available in print and digital formats.

In this year’s edition, the Cyber and Privacy Liability chapter analyzes recent cases examining crime policy coverage for cyber-related losses and updated sections on key cyber insuring agreements:

  • Media Liability
  • Event Management
  • E-crime
  • Network Interruption
  • Cyber Extortion

The book also contains updated policy form excerpts for the D&O Liability and Cyber and Privacy Liability chapters, reflecting policy language used by industry leaders. Additionally, it includes an in-depth discussion of the Supreme Court of Texas’s 2018 landmark decision in USAA Texas Lloyds Co. v. Menchaca on statutory bad faith claims.

“Amy Elizabeth Stewart has established herself as the authority in Texas on insurance issues,” says Dallas trial lawyer Brian Lauten. “Her book, Texas Insurance Coverage Litigation: The Litigator’s Practice Guide, is the bible and go-to authority on insurance coverage. This book should be on the shelf of every lawyer who confronts insurance issues in their practice.”

The founder and managing principal of Amy Stewart Law, Ms. Stewart has earned selection to the annual Texas Super Lawyers list every year since 2009, and has also been included on The Best Lawyers in America and D Magazine’s list of the Best Lawyers in Dallas.
