Insurance UpdateJune 23, 2021 |
Insurance coverage litigation often centers on the interpretation of specific terms and phrases in an insurance policy.
In our June Insurance Update:
- The Illinois Supreme Court decides whether disclosure of biometric identifiers to a single party is a “publication” and whether a BIPA claim involves a “right of privacy”
- A federal court in Kentucky construes the phrase “because of” in assessing whether an opioid suit seeks “damages because of bodily injury”
- A federal court in Pennsylvania applies ejusdem generis in determining the parameters of Forgery or Alteration coverage in a fraudulent wire transfer case
- Another Pennsylvania federal court considers whether a defective cookware claim involved an “occurrence”
- And a federal court in Connecticut determines what “liability claim” means when construing an animal liability exclusion
We also discuss an 11th Circuit decision addressing late notice under Georgia law and Vizio’s failed attempt to get reimbursement from its excess insurer for its Smart TV Litigation settlement.
We hope you enjoy the update.
