And The Winners Are…
Insurance Coverage Personalized License Plate Contest Winners Announced

Well it wasn’t easy, given the huge number of entries, but the winners of the Coverage Opinions Insurance Coverage Personalized License Plate Contest, in no particular order, are:
Nina Kallen
The Lawyer’s Lawyer: Specializing in Brief Writing for Busy Attorneys
Roslindale, Massachusetts
Lori Cole Magerko
Senior Counsel
GuideOne Insurance
Des Moines, Iowa

These two license plates clearly tell other drivers that you work in the insurance world -- and especially coverage. The winning license plates were chosen because they best met this criteria: they make no sense to anyone who is not in the insurance or coverage world -- but complete sense to someone who is.

Congratulations to Nina and Lori. Each will receive a copy of the 4th edition of Insurance Key Issues as soon as it is released.

Some of the entries that were clever, but not chosen, had meanings that applied to both the insurance and non-insurance world. For example, ROR can be reservation of rights or the driver is someone whose initials are ROR. 4CORNRS is a great entry. But it also refers to the point where Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico all meet. Some entries that were solely relevant to coverage were too on the obscure side, such that even some people who work in insurance wouldn’t get them. For example, lots of insurance professionals would have no reasons to know was a TGT TNDR is. Some entries were coverage related, but also applicable to law in general, such as MOTN4SJ and S TOPPEL.

So if you didn’t win at least you can see that I gave the selection process a lot of though.

By the way, I’d be remiss if I didn’t give this one an honorable mentions for its cleverness:


This entry came from Jerry Oshinsky of Kasowitz Benson’s L.A. office. Jerry litigated the landmark case of Keene Corp. v. Insurance Company of North America (1981), where the District of Columbia Court of Appeals rejected pro-rata allocation, in the context of multiple triggered policies, and instead adopted “all sums.”

I hope everyone is enjoying their super cool Coverage Opinions pen. If it runs out of ink, don’t panic. Just let me know and I’ll send you another one.


Thank you to everyone who entered the Coverage Opinions Insurance Coverage Personalized License Plate Contest.

I’ll do another contest next year, after the 4th edition of Insurance Key Issues is released, so I can give them out as prizes.
