The Merrill Doctrine and Federal Reinsured Crop Insurers

Baker Courtroom - UND School of Law
April 3
11:30 -Lunch
12:15 - Presentation

Speaker: Professor Chad G. Marzen from Florida State University
Approved for 1 CLE Credit

This hour-long presentation will provide a brief overview of the federal crop insurance program as well as discuss several key contemporary issues in crop insurance litigation. The presentation will focus on Merrill in particular, and discuss the early trend in litigation which developed where the courts applied the Merrill doctrine to alleged misrepresentations of agents of the FCIC as well as the agents of private insurers. In the early to mid 2000s, the decisions of three state courts (in Kentucky, Georgia and Tennessee) declined to extend the shield of the Merrill doctrine to federally reinsured private crop insurers. Most recently, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee in the Skymont Farms v. Federal Crop Ins. Corp. decision revived life into Merrill and held it applied involving a federally reinsured crop insurance policy.

The presentation will then cover a proposed rule of the presenter that could balance both the interests of farmer insureds and federally reinsured private crop insurers in future cases involving the Merrill doctrine

Whether you are married and seeking divorce or never married but now separating, the impact on your child(ren) is significant. Research indicates that traumatic and/or stressful events can affect children as young as one year old. Parents want to do their best to minimize the negative impact and keep their children from getting in the middle of the conflict between the parents.
Parents Forever™ is an education program developed by University of Minnesota Extension based on the research about the effects of divorce on children. Research on program effectiveness was conducted by the NDSU Extension Service. Parents Forever™ has been taught by NDSU Extension Agents for more than 10 years.
