Gorfinkel and LaPorta Save Client MillionsSeptember 30, 2016 |
The New Jersey federal court in Castoro v. Sentry Ins. Co. et al. has granted a motion for partial summary judgment made on behalf of our client Sentry Insurance Co. by Paul Gorfinkel and Anthony LaPorta. The case involves insurance coverage for cleaning up a contaminated site in West Windsor, New Jersey, owned by Sentry’s policyholder, Castoro & Co. Castoro had argued that the contamination was caused by hundreds of separate accidents, thus triggering multiple separate limits of liability under each of a dozen policies that Sentry issued. Paul and Anthony were able to convince the court that all of the contamination was caused by a single accident, and that only one limit of liability was available under each policy. This ruling saved our client millions of dollars in potential coverage.
