Defense Verdict for Insurance Client

Obtained a defense verdict for our insurance client following a three-week trial. The plaintiff sought $3.1 million related to a consent decree where it agreed to clean up soil and groundwater contamination from a manufacturing site. The insurers asserted that the plaintiff knew about the contamination for decades and did not properly notify its insurers, and that prior claims had been made associated with the contamination without proper notice. The jury found in favor of the insurers on all claims.
