   19  the surplus lines market. Superior coverage may be available in

   21  surplus lines carriers are not protected under the Florida
   22  Insurance Guaranty Act with respect to any right of recovery for
   23  the obligation of an insolvent unlicensed insurer.” If the
   24  notice is signed by the insured, the insured is presumed to have
   25  been informed and to know that other coverage may be available,
