In the February Insurance Law Update, Jenner & Block Partner David M. Kroeger and Associate Elin I. Park explain that the coronavirus outbreak has generated questions among businesses regarding whether their insurance policies will cover interruptions and related losses.  The authors observe that each property insurance policy and program should be considered on its own merits, “particularly as the language of commercial property insurance policies can differ, sometimes materially, from one insurer and/or one policyholder to the next.”  The ILU was published in Law360.

March

In the March Insurance Law Update, Jenner & Block Partner Brian S. Scarbrough and Associate Huiyi Chen explore the issue of allocation in directors and officers liability insurance policies.  They highlight the Delaware Superior Court’s recent decision in Arch Insurance Co. v. Murdock.  In that case, the court interpreted an explicit allocation provision in a D&O policy and held the larger settlement rule applicable despite the presence of a “best efforts” clause and a “relative legal and financial exposures” clause in the allocation provision. The ILU was published in Law360.
