Hylant Group to sell malpractice policies

Locked in a legal dispute with Ohio's largest issuer of malpractice insurance, Toledo's Hylant Group Inc. has announced a deal to begin selling a rival's policies in Ohio and Michigan.

Hylant, the largest privately owned insurance agency in Ohio, will begin selling policies for ACE Medical Risk, Philadelphia.

In February, Hylant sued ProAssurance Corp., the state's largest issuer of medical malpractice policies, over that insurer's decision to drop the Toledo agent. Hylant alleged the move was improper. A trial is set for August, 2007 in U.S. District Court in Toledo.
