Insurance Update

January 18, 2018 | Robert Tugander | Insurance Coverage

It has been a frigid start to the new year, but insurance remains a hot topic with the courts.  In this month’s Insurance Update:

  • The Florida Supreme Court decides whether a statutory presuit notice process is a “suit”;
  • The Connecticut Supreme Court provides guidance on when a claim arises out of a business pursuit;
  • The Seventh Circuit determines whether a “Claims in Process” exclusion is ambiguous, and whether a district court properly excused a policyholder’s 21-month delay in providing notice;
  • An Illinois Appellate Court addresses whether asbestos suits tied to the policyholder’s custom-designed ash handling conveyor systems arose from a single occurrence, or multiple occurrences;
  • A federal district court in Connecticut decides if a policyholder’s alleged misrepresentation about the condition of a home’s concrete foundation gives rise to a duty to defend; and
  • An Illinois federal court determines whether a claim asserting both trademark infringement and copyright infringement falls within the exception to an intellectual property exclusion.

We hope your year is off to a good start.
