A bill approved by Michigan Legislature that further limits certain consumer lawsuits against insurance companies under the state’s Consumer Protection Act has been sent to Gov. Rick Snyder for his signature.
The issue addressed by HB 5558 “is whether a consumer may sue an insurance company under the Michigan Consumers Protection Act (MCPA) for damages resulting from unfair, unconscionable, or deceptive methods, acts, or practices in violation of Chapter 20 of the Insurance Code that occurred on or before March 28, 2001,” according to an analysis of the bill published by the state Legislature.
