UPDATES ON BUSINESS INTERRUPTION COVERAGE DISPUTES RELATING TO COVID-19
By James M. Lenaghan and Tiffany C. Millioen

To date, hundreds of businesses have filed lawsuits against insurers arising out of denials for COVID-19 business interruption losses. Most of this litigation is in its early stages and is being closely watched by insurers and policyholders. In addition to litigation, regulators are issuing guidance and legislators are proposing bills that would affect coverage for the losses. This article provides a snapshot of the situation at this time.

 

The Demise of Two Rescission Truisms, M. Darcambal and V. Gokhale, DRI Newsletter, Volume 31, Issue 2, July 2020. What makes a disability or life insurance policy contestable and when is it contestable?
