Notable Cases & Transactions
Michael J. Balestra obtained a jury verdict after a five day trial in Jefferson County Supreme Court finding that a casualty insurer improperly disclaimed insurance coverage for a fire loss at the clients’ home. The insurer disclaimed coverage for the loss and defended the litigation on the grounds that the clients intentionally caused the fire and made material misrepresentations to the insurer during the course of its investigation. The jury determined that the insurer failed to prove its defenses at trial.
