TRIPP SCOTT’S STEPHANIE ALEXANDER AND BRADY COBB WIN GROUNDBREAKING APPEAL FOR THE LIFE INSURANCE SETTLEMENT ASSOCIATION

Appeal upholds May 2009 ruling

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 24, 2010 – Tripp Scott today announced that Stephanie Alexander, director, and Brady Cobb, associate, recently won an appeal in Florida on behalf of its client, Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA).

The appeal upheld a ruling from May 2009 that found that Florida insurance regulators overstepped their authority in seeking transaction information from other states.  In that case, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation had wanted to create a rule, 690-204.030, that would have required viatical insurance settlement providers to file voluminous and private financial and business information.  The rule was ultimately found an impermissible exercise of legislative authority and therefore invalid.

INCREASING SUBPRIME AUTO LOAN DEFAULTS – THE CANARY IN THE COAL MINE FOR 2023 BANKRUPTCY FILINGS

By: Charles M Tatelbaum and Corey D. Cohen, Tripp Scott PA

Experience tells us that the recent increase in subprime auto loan defaults can be a reliable predictor of an overall increase in consumer bankruptcies which, in turn, causes problems for businesses in many sectors.  Recently reported data discloses that in the fourth quarter of 2022, subprime auto loan defaults increased by slightly more than 30%.

These defaults rise from a number of reasons, namely:  (1) higher interest rates on the subprime loans that have a floating rate of interest; (2) inflationary increases which have pinched consumers' budgets; and (3) increased costs of rental housing.
