Ralph Tyler

Maryland Insurance Commissioner Ralph S. Tyler is stepping down early next year to become general counsel at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. That is a big-time job.

Ralph has never turned down an invitation to speak at my insurance law class, and he just seems like a good guy. I have disagreed with some decisions that came from his office, but I think losing him is a blow to the Maryland Insurance Administration, both from the perspective of insurance companies and consumers/injury victims. This is probably the best compliment you can give an insurance commissioner.
