On January 27, my colleague, Jennifer White, was quoted in Business Insurance concerning the recent decision in E.M. Sergeant Pulp & Chemical Company, Inc. v. The Travelers Indemnity Company, which she and attorney Brittany Davidson discussed last week on Hunton’s Insurance Recovery Blog. In that case, a federal district court allowed a chemical company to seek coverage and defense costs for Superfund-related claims, despite what the court call “scanty” evidence that the company was even insured during the relevant time period. As Jenn explained to Business Insurance, the court’s decision is significant because the court “balance[d] the evidentiary burdens against the reality of long-term claims, and the reality is that papers and people are often missing by the time the claim is made.” If you have questions about the case, or about your own long-tail claim (for example, involving asbestos or alleged environmental damage), contact Jenn or any member of our or Insurance Coverage Counseling and Litigation team for more information.
