Lynda A. Bennett, Chair of the firm’s Insurance Recovery group, spoke to Business Insurance on potential legal battles over coverage of business interruptions in the wake of COVID-19. She says, “There’s no doubt that some policyholders have a very clear and likely enforceable virus exclusion.” Other exclusions, however, may not be strictly applicable. “Jurisdiction is going to matter,” she continues. “There are some jurisdictions that are known to be very insurer-friendly and just as many jurisdictions that are known to be more inclined to see the policyholders’ view toward things.” Bennett adds that where some jurisdictions apply pollution exclusions broadly, “there are just as many other jurisdictions that say otherwise.”
