During this survey period, Georgia appellate courts reviewed the usual number of insurance cases, fine-tuned policy terms and refined the insured/insurer relationship. One area of intense interest concerned limiting subrogation. Another area of interest involved the "limited release" used in uninsured motorist litigation. The Georgia General Assembly primarily focused on managed care, with litigation sure to follow as courts apply the remedial tools. Overall, insurers managed to enforce most adequately articulated policy terms and successfully avoided embarrassing and costly "bad faith" decisions through the timely use of declaratory judgment proceedings.
