Although last year the Georgia General Assembly actively worked on managed care and the appellate courts stymied subrogors, legislation was light and appellate litigation routine this survey year. Many appellate opinions were reminders of coverage processing requirements (send the sixty-day "bad faith" demand for payment). Other opinions applied established insurance law principles to particular fact patterns (does every road wreck in Georgia have an appellate coverage decision?). All concerned are having some difficulty adjusting to Georgia's gradual departure from the traditional "four corners" coverage test analysis. The supreme court did breathe life into the hope for liability coverage for sexual harassment, ebbing the tide of adverse coverage opinions.
