Insurance Litigation Reporter

Washington, D.C. partner Roland Goss authored a case note in the June 5, 2020, issue of Insurance Litigation Reporter for an opinion from the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, Utica Mutual Insurance Company v. Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company, 2020 WL 2047431 (2d Cir. April 28, 2020). This case, which has been extensively litigated for almost 11 years, with $64 million of potential exposure, plus over a decade of attorneys’ fees, is a good example of disputes and financial losses that can arise when insurance policies are not carefully drafted.
