NEW! Annie & the Octopus: Common-Law Indemnity

Did you ever think a law book could be entertaining? And if, against all odds, you found an entertaining law book, what do you think its topic would be? You probably wouldn’t have guessed “common-law indemnity.” Well, Annie & the Octopus is here to surprise you. In engaging fashion, this book gives down-to-earth advice on asserting and defending a common-law indemnity claim. It tackles complex statutes and confusing case law to cover the following subjects:

  • history of common-law indemnity
  • elements and proof required
  • statutes of limitation and repose
  • vouching in
  • settlement of the underlying case
  • defense-cost indemnity
  • predictions for the future of indemnity

This is not your typical law book. If you want a stodgy old tome of dry legal writing, look elsewhere. You might just find yourself reading Annie & the Octopus for fun.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

1          Introduction
2          Common-Law Implied Indemnity—Bygones and Backdrop
3          Fault: The Illusive Chameleon
4          Pleading and Proving an Indemnity Claim
5          Surviving an Eclectic Shock
6          Statutes of Limitation and Repose

  • Amendments to statutes regarding notice in probate proceedings and will contests.
  • New provisions regarding attorney fees, advance directives, and the personal representative’s compensation
