ROSELAND, N.J./August 1, 2011 -- Connell Foley partner George J. Kenny presented three lectures of two hours each entitled “Litigating the Insurance Policy” in north, central, and south Jersey during this past June.

The programs, presented by the New Jersey Law Journal of which Kenny serves on the editorial board, were part of the state’s mandatory continuing legal education program and accreditation was earned by the attendees at the programs. Kenny is the co-author of New Jersey Insurance Law, a standard text on coverage law, and is recognized as an authority on insurance coverage litigation.

His lectures analyzed the importance of each section of a typical liability policy and covered the duties of the insurer to pay and to defend, obligations of the insured, issues relating to the formation and termination of policies, and the consequences of bad faith on the part of either the insured or insurer, as well as suits against insurance producers.

Kenny was the founding chair of the Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee of the American Bar Association’s Litigation Section. He has been a certified civil trial attorney since the Supreme Court certification process began in the early 1980s, has served on the adjunct faculty at Rutgers University School of Law in Newark for the past twenty years teaching civil litigation, and has been actively involved in a wide range of professional activities, including service on numerous New Jersey Supreme Court Committees, and for fifteen years as chair of the New Jersey Supreme Court Committee on Attorney Advertising.

Kenny is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Trial Advocates. His practice at Connell Foley is focused on a broad spectrum of civil litigation.
