Running an insurer, ATLA style

Reader Ben Houston writes, regarding Ted's column on how to run an insurance company along Litigation-Lobby-approved lines:

Outstanding article, really enjoyed it. I'm a med mal attorney who has been on both sides of the table, defense now. I would love to represent the underinsured docs of Doroshow Insurance for some cause of action based on the mismanagement of the company (because failure of an insurance company must necessarily result from mismanagement according to ATLA) when some state guaranty fund gets stuck with the inevitable future claims of the failed company.
