The men charged are John J. Kurant, Jr., of St. Augustine, Adam Horvit, of Parkland, and Christopher E. Labaire, Greg Wilson, Jerold Wolfe, John Grant, and Scott Coleman all from Jupiter. They each face a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison if convicted. The Department of Justice says the indictments of Kurant and Labaire cite that Boat U.S. paid out $853,758 in insurance proceeds based upon the sham and fraudulent marine insurance claims.
The DOJ says the scam, worked by Kurant, a claims adjuster for Boat U.S., partnering with Labaire, defrauded their marine insurance program by creating and submitting fake insurance policies and claims. The claims included the other men as pleasure boat owners who experienced 'total losses' including theft, damage, or sinking. When the boat insurance claims were paid, the DOJ alleges the seven men shared the money.

If you work in Alaska, you have probably received a notice from the Alaska DOI regarding a hearing regarding the AK export list. Details can be found at http://aws.state.ak.us/OnlinePublicNotices/Notices/View.aspx?id=169486
The hearing is Thursday October 3rd and the deadline for written comments is Tuesday, October at 4:30 ADT
As you may be aware there have been significant issues recently on exporting Maritime Employers liability (MEL) coverage, particularly to London, and yet there are almost no licensed markets writing this coverage in Alaska for most operations.
As such I would urge you to send your request to have Maritime Employers Liability added to the export list for Alaska urgently to Sarah.firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline!
