GEICO and other national insurers are seeking to change the outcome of Abramson v. Aetna, 76 F. 3d 304 (9th Cir. 1996) by adding
choice of governing law provisions to their out-of-state UM/UIM policies which select mainland law instead of Hawai'i law to interpret their insurance
policies when one happens to cover a Hawai'i accident. Insured customers have no idea that their coverages are being reduced by such legal maneuvering.
Some injured parties will still have claims for stacking of the uninsured (UM) and underinsured (UIM) coverages under the new policies, but the
reach of Abramson is being substantially reduced.
