Kentucky courts have recently decided a number of cases that have a significant impact on insurance law. Several decisions dealt with the assertion of rights at variance with contract provisions and the degree to which the law will recognize the reasonable expectations of the insured. The courts also considered novel questions concerning cancellation by substitution, the application and validity of various exclusions in homeowners and automobile liability policies, the application and validity of the escape clause in automobile liability policies, and the stacking of automobile liability coverages. This Survey will examine those questions, as well as the growing body of law relating to the application and construction of the Kentucky Motor Vehicle Reparations Act.
