Listen in on an appeal!

You can listen in on the audio of cases set for oral arguments at the Colorado Supreme Court or Court of Appeals. These are real cases where the lawyers argue in front of the appeals judges. As an example I have a link below to several cases heard a few months ago. When you click on the link you should click on the STC case (05CA2340). The case involves apportionment. Insurers love to limit benefits and try to use this legal theory of apportionment to pay for only a portion of benefits. So over the years there have been numerous cases involving apportionment. By way of example insurers may say they only need to pay for half of your surgery if they can establish it should be apportioned. In any event the oral arguments of both sides can be heard in the case noted above.
