Item 8.01                           Other Events
 
On October 28, 2008, we announced that we had entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with Podiatry Insurance Company of America, A Mutual Company ("PICA") pursuant to which we will acquire all of the stock of PICA in a sponsored demutualization in which PICA will convert from a mutual to a stock insurance company as permitted under the laws of Illinois (PICA's state of domicile).  On November 13, 2008, PICA filed with the Illinois Director of Insurance the Plan of Conversion which sets forth the terms and conditions of its proposed demutualization.  On the same date, we filed with the Illinois Director of Insurance our Statement on Form A regarding the acquisition of control of PICA through our purchase of all of PICA's newly authorized stock under the terms set forth in the Plan of Conversion and the Stock Purchase Agreement.  The demutualization of PICA under the Plan of Conversion and our purchase of PICA's stock pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement are subject to approval of the Illinois Director of Insurance and the policyholder-members of PICA.
 
The Illinois Insurance Code requires PICA to mail to its policyholder-members within 15 business days after filing the Form A a notice that summarizes the information in the Form A.  We included a form of this notice in our Form A filing, and we are required  to provide copies of the notice to PICA for mailing to its policyholder-members.  Instead of including a summary of the proposed transactions in the notice, we have elected to provide interested policyholder-members access to the copies of the Plan of Conversion and the Stock Purchase Agreement by filing them as exhibits to this report and by including a reference to this Form 8-K report in the notice to be mailed by PICA to its policyholder members.  The notice will advise the policyholder-members of PICA that a copy of this report together with copies of the Plan of Conversion and the Stock Purchase Agreement will be posted on our website at www.ProAssurance.com.
 
PICA will also be required to mail to its eligible policyholder members a notice of the policyholder meeting to be held to consider and vote upon the Plan of Conversion and the Stock Purchase Agreement.  That notice will be mailed after the Plan of Conversion has been approved by the Director and will be accompanied by an information statement that includes detailed information regarding the transactions contemplated by the Form A, the Plan of Conversion and the Stock Purchase Agreement if they are approved by the Illinois Director of Insurance.
