In an article for FC&S Legal, Dennis Kearney outlines the impact of an appellate court decision that New Jersey's Insurance Fraud Prevention Act does not guarantee a jury trial. He writes that prior to this ruling "New Jersey had one of the most powerful insurance fraud-fighting tools in the country. Now, it may possess the most powerful one." The court ruled that insurance fraud differs in several important ways from common law fraud, making it "more akin to equitable fraud. And in matters of equity in New Jersey, jury trials are typically disallowed."
