On September 16, the Virginia Supreme Court ruled that Steadfast Insurance Co. had no duty to defend or cover AES Corp. in a lawsuit the company is fighting in Native Village of Kivalina, Alaska over damages from greenhouse gas emissions, because there was no “occurrence” under AES’s policy language. The village argued that drilling activities by AES and other energy companies operating in the area led to global warming which was having a very detrimental effect on the village and its economy.
