Bill summary

House committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes. 

Amends GS 8C-1, Rule 411, to provide that the rule does not require the exclusion of evidence of insurance against liability or coverage limits (was, liability only) when offered for another purpose. 

Amends new GS 7A-37.2 by clarifying in the conditions that are to be met when a named party to an action may elect binding arbitration that the limitation on damages is not to exceed the amount in controversy for the trial court (was, district court).
