The article discusses the court rulings on surplus lines insurers that have caused confusion and concern in Florida. It states that the decision requires surplus lines insurers to file their policy forms with the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation for approval. The rule applies to admitted insurers and to surplus lines insurers in the state. It argues that surplus lines insurance is not subject to the same rigorous statutory standards applicable to admitted insurance companies.
