George Donnelly of the agorist public relations agency Shield Mutual recently published a report on some apparent financial misdealings with the team behind Adam Kokesh, who remains jailed since the summer for possessing a shotgun in Washington, D.C.
Donnelly was making it known of some irregularities with the funds raised in Kokesh’s defense, prompting him to decide to cease representing Kokesh. Everyone involved hopes Kokesh is released and his funds are accounted for.
Curiously enough, even though Kokesh isn’t a current customer, it still seems Shield Mutual is liable to provide its services since the event that prompted the aid request (Kokesh’s arrest) took place while his policy was in force with Shield Mutual.
For example, if there is a hurricane that strikes an insured person’s home and the policy provides coverage for additional living expenses while the home is being repaired, the insured person doesn’t have to remain with that insurance provider to make or continue a claim under a policy.
What matters is that at the time of his arrest, Kokesh had a policy. Now if he fired Shield Mutual, that would be different matter and would release Shield Mutual’s liability. That’s how I’m interpreting the terms of the policy.
