During the afternoon breakout session, Margo will discuss which party, insurer, or policyholder bears the burden to allocate damages in mixed-claim scenarios; steps to take to preserve allocation issues; evidentiary issues arising when proving allocation; and use of motions to intervene or declaratory judgment actions to address allocation issues.
