NEW YORK A MENDATORY ENDORSEMENT - NY STATUTE 3420

Wherever used in this endorsement: 1)"we","us", "our" and "Insurer" mean the insurance company which issued this policy; 2)"you", "your", "Insured" and "first Named Insured" mean the N a m ed C orporat i on, Named Entity, Named Organization, Named Sponsor, Named Insured, or Insured stated in the declarations page; 3) "other insured(s)" means all other persons or entities afforded coverage under the policy; 4) "Discovery Period" means Discovery Period or Extended Reportin g Perio d, as defined in the policy; and 5) "Claim" means Claim or Suit as defined in the policy.

It is hereby understood and agreed that the policy is amended as follows:

A.     

The following provisions are hereby added to the policy: FAILURE TO GIVE NOTICE WITHIN PRESCRIBED TIME:

Failure to give any notice required to be given by this policy, or any policy of which this is a renewal, within the prescribed time shall not invalidate any Claim made against an Insured if:

(a)     

it shall be shown not to have been reasonably possible to give notice within the prescribed time and that notice was given as soon as was reasonably possible thereafter; or

(b)     

the failure to provide timely notice has not prejudiced the Insurer.

Any such Claim shall be deemed to have been first made against the Insured and noticed to the Insurer within the Policy Period or Discovery Period of the policy issued by the I n s urer (the "Noticed Policy") in which the Insurer received notice of the Claim; provided that the coverage afforded with respect to the Noticed Policy shall be in an amount not greater than the amount of coverage afforded with respect to the Policy Period of the p ol icy i ssued by the Insurer (the "Former Policy") in which the Claim was actually first made against the Insured. The foregoing sentence may result in (but not be limited to): (1) reducing the lim it of liability available for such a Claim to the available limit of liability applicable to the Former Policy; (2) increasing the applicable retention amount to that retention amount appl icab le to the Former Policy; or (3) reducing or eliminating coverage due to exclusions or other restrictions appearing in the Former Policy but eliminated, in part or in whole, in the Noticed Policy. No coverag e shall be afforded under this endorsement if there was not in existence a Former Policy at the time the Claim was actually first made against the Insured.

With respect to subsection (b) above, any such Claim must be n o t iced d uri ng the Policy Period or Discovery Period of a Noticed Policy which is a renewal or extension of the Former Policy.

Nothing in this endorsement shall be construed to provide coverage for a Claim under more than one Policy Period or Discovery Period.

PREJUDICE:

ENDORSEMENT# 1

(continued)

In the event that the Insurer alleges that it was prejudiced as a resul t of a failure to give notice within the time required under the policy, the burden of proof shall be on:

(a)     

the Insurer to prove that it has been prejudiced, if the notice was p r o vi ded within two years of the time required under the policy; or

(b)     

the Insured to prove that the Insurer has not been prejudiced, if the notice was provided more than two years after the time required under the policy.

The Insurer's rights shall not be deemed prejudiced unless the failure to timely provide notice materially impairs the ability of the Insurer to investigate or defend the Claim.

Notwithstanding the above, an irrebuttable presumption of prejudice shall apply if, p r i or to the notice, the Insured's liability has been determined by a court of competent jurisdiction or by a binding arbitration; or if the Insured has resolved the Claim by settlement or other compromise.

NOTICE TO AGENT:

Notice given by or on behalf of the Insured, or written notice by or on behalf of the injured party or any other claimant, to any licensed agent of the Insurer in the state of New York, with particulars sufficient to identify the Insured, shall be deemed notice to the Insurer.

INSOLVENCY/ BANKRUPTCY OF INSURED:

The insolvency or bankruptcy of the Insured shall not relieve the Insurer of its o b ligations under this policy as long as all policy requirements are met by Insured, its trustee or receiver in bankruptcy. Should a covered judgment be rendered aga inst an i n so lvent or bankrupt Insured, the Insurer shall be liable for the amount of such judgment not to exceed the applicable limit of liability under this policy.

B.     

The Clause entitled, "Action Against Us" or "Action Against Company" is deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:

No one may bring an action against us unless there has been full c o mpl ia nce with all the terms of this policy and the amount of the Insured's obligation to pay has been finally determined either by:

1. judgment against the Insured which remains unsatisfied at the expiration of thirty (30) days from the service of notice of entry of the judgment upon the I n sured and upon us; or 2. written agreement of the Insured, the claimant and us.

Any person or organization or legal representative thereof who has secured such judgment or written agreement shall thereafter be entitled to recover under this policy to the extent of the insurance afforded by this policy. We may not be impleaded by the I n s ured or its legal representative in any legal action brought a g ain st the I ns ured by any p e rs on or organization.

ALL OTHER TERMS, CONDITIONS AND EXCLUSIONS REMAIN UNCHANGED.
