Ford Marrin Obtains Summary Judgment on Additional Insured Coverage

Zoological Society of Buffalo, Inc. v. Burlington Ins. Co., 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 103800 (W.D.N.Y. July 29, 2014).

The firm recently obtained summary judgment on behalf of The Burlington Insurance Company in a case involving the interpretation of a blanket additional insured endorsement to a CGL insurance policy. The Western District of New York upheld Burlington’s interpretation of the endorsement, which restricted coverage to those entities in contractual privity with the policyholder.

Partner James Adrian and Associate John Mattoon worked on this matter.
