The legal scope of insurance defense focuses on matters of protecting the rights of insurance companies in the defense of claims made by policyholders, typically as a result of a plaintiff filing a lawsuit after being denied a claim of insurance. Congress enacted the McCarran-Ferguson Act in 1944 which established a legal basis for regulating the insurance industry at the state level.
