“Testing Professional Services Exclusions to FCA Allegations,” Insurance Law Update

In this Insurance Law Update, Jenner & Block Partner Jan A. Larson and Associate Jennifer S. Senior examine implications of a case pending before the Ninth Circuit and involving allegations brought under the False Claims Act.  The decision in HotChalk Inc. v. Scottsdale Insurance Co., the authors observe, “is expected to address the availability of coverage for claims relating to a policyholder’s internal activities, such as compensation practices, that are arguably ancillary to the policyholder’s external business practices or professional services provided to its clients and customers.”  The Insurance Law Update was reprinted in Law360.
