This cumulative online database of insurance cases was originally created by Jill Berkeley in 1986 to supplement the hard copy Fifteen-Year Index of The Policy, prepared by Peter C. Morse and published by the Illinois State Bar Association in November 1986.
The database contains major appellate insurance coverage decisions, both reported and unreported, in Illinois, recent opinions from the Northern District of Illinois, the Seventh Circuit, and a few other jurisdictions, issued from 1986 through the present.
The database can be accessed through several views including:
In every view, you will be able to access the Case View, which includes all information currently available in the database about every case. For some cases, the full factual summary or additional information about the case appears in the Case View.
The Word & Phrase view reflects a one-sentence holding of each case under a specific category.
Please send your comments or suggestions for changes to the database to the Editor, Jill Berkeley, whose contact info appears at left.
