The back story behind a six-year initiative to protect design professionals from uninsurable indemnity obligations
Meagher & Geer Partner, Mark Bloomquist, is the author of the article titled, How a Bill Becomes a Law: What You Did Not Learn in Civics Class, published in the September 2014 issue of The Hennepin Lawyer.
Mark was recently recognized for his work with two others on the passing of the Indemnification bill, (HF2090, SF1757): ACEC/MN’s indemnification bill makes uninsurable clauses in contracts void and unenforceable. His effort was six years in the making.
