Highlight

Under a Miller-Shugart agreement and judgment, an insured defendant may stipulate for settlement of a plaintiff's claims and stipulate judgment may be collected only from the proceeds of any insurance policy, with no personal liability to the defendant. The stipulated judgment is not conclusive on the insurer.
While the burden of proof rests on a party claiming coverage under an insurance policy, the insurer has the burden of establishing the applicability of exclusions.
Summary judgment is a procedural device for the prompt resolution of a controversy on the merits without a trial if there are no genuine issues of material fact or inferences that can reasonably be drawn from undisputed facts, or if the only issues to be resolved are questions of law.
