No dramatic reversal of direction or case of first impression occurred this survey period. Rather, the courts continued to clarify and refine the fine lines of Georgia insurance law. Multiple opinions help carriers to better handle time-limit demands and to effectively reserve rights to known coverage issues. After decades of confusing opinions, it was finally made crystal-clear that an "occurrence" can exist where the damage is to the insured's work. The Great Recession brought Georgia an abundance of insurance rulings related to the risks encountered by financial institutions.
