Court Awards Summary Judgment on CGL Classification Limitation

The Burlington Insurance Company v. American Dream Production Corp., et al., (N.Y Sup. Ct., New York Cty, Index No. 108733/09).

The New York County Supreme Court granted summary judgment to the firm’s client, The Burlington Insurance Company, in an insurance coverage action interpreting a classification limitation endorsement to a CGL insurance policy. The court upheld the policy’s classification limitation for “Interior Carpentry,” and declared that Burlington did not owe coverage for an underlying accident in which a worker was injured during demolition operations, not carpentry operations.

Partner James M. Adrian and Associate John A. Mattoon represented the client in this action.
