Dennis Kass Wins Public Service Attorney of the Year Award from IASIU
The International Association of Special Investigation Units ("IASIU") has named Founding Partner Dennis B. Kass as Attorney of the Year. IASIU’s Public Service Award, they state, recognizes NICB, law enforcement, prosecutors, and representatives from public agencies and/or organizations. One or more significant events of the investigation must have occurred during the year of the award.
Dennis B. Kass is celebrated for his impact, positive effect on the insurance industry, positive effect on the outside community, and the uniqueness and exceptional quality of his work. This year he obtained a published appellate decision in State ex rel Geico v. Thrive et al ((2016) 244 Cal. App. 4th 1184). This case is the first to make clear that California’s anti-fraud statute, Insurance Code section 1871.7, does not require damages or detrimental reliance.
