Post Loss Underwriting
The plaintiff’s bar has coined the phrase “post loss underwriting” to change the victim of a misrepresentation into a villain. Rescission is not underwriting of any kind. Rescission is an equitable remedy provided to the parties to an insurance contract by statute when one party to the contract has been deceived by the other. The purpose of rescission is not to punish but to restore the parties status quo ante. The deceiver should never be allowed to profit from deceit.
