Barrasso Usdin Wins Summary Judgment on Insurance Coverage Issues

(Client: Insurance Client)

The firm secured a victory for an insurance client in Louisiana state court, which granted summary judgment based on coverage issues in the policy and dismissed claims stemming from a multi-million dollar alleged bank fraud.  The claimant sought insurance coverage for a related defamation claim, and the district court dismissed the claim on summary judgment, enforcing policy provisions that precluded coverage. The victory is great precedent for insurers seeking to enforce policy language that requires notice and cooperation from their insureds.

Laurence ("Lon") D. LeSueur, Jr. handled the matter.
