Courtroom Success 2016-19: Boston Associate Amy Parker

Boston Associate Amy Parker recently prevailed in an insurance coverage dispute over whether our client, an insurance company, owed a duty to defend its policyholder in a lawsuit. The lawsuit claimed in excess of $300,000 in damages to replace a wooden gymnasium floor installed in a school. The claim against the insured alleged that it had failed to install the floor in accordance with the contract specifications and in the time period called for by the contract. The insured, represented by experienced coverage counsel, moved for summary judgment before we had even answered the complaint, arguing there was at least a potential for coverage under the policy based on extrinsic evidence. After briefing and argument the Superior Court granted summary judgment to our client from the bench.
