In continuing news:

A Florida judge shot down NCCI and the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation’s (OIR) 14.5 percent rate hike in that state, saying that NCCI held “secret” meetings without public notice, and because it is statutorily recognized, acted improperly in doing so. The ruling stems from a lawsuit filed by Miami-based attorney James Fee, who sued the organization in August in order to “introduce some required clarity and transparency into the opaque world of worker’s compensation insurance rates in Florida.” NCCI has maintained that it is not subject to Florida’s public records and open meetings laws (called the Sunshine Law in Florida) and will appeal.
