    Course / Program Material2007 TIPS 15th Annual Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee Program - Tucson AZMarc's paper states that the law of first party insurance bad faith is predicated on the recognition in part of this fundamental adversity of interests between the insurer and its insured, especially at the precise moment when the insured is calling upon the insurer for performance.The key lesson from the paper is that if one desires to preserve the privilege (or immunity) that would otherwise attach to a statement shared with an insurance company, the circumstances surrounding sharing the statement should indicate that it is being provided to assist the insurer in the defense or in evaluating the settlement of the claim.
