Stacey Nakasian provided in-depth commentary for Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly regarding a recent Superior Court ruling in what may be Rhode Island’s first ruling in a business interruption insurance coverage dispute prompted by COVID-19 shutdowns.
From the Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly article by Barry Bridges:
“After taking a hard look at the language of the policy, Judge Stern came out and said the insured had pleaded enough to keep the door open as to civil authority coverage, and that the carrier had not shown the exclusion would apply under the circumstances,” Nakasian continued. “He was careful to take a deep dive, probably aware he’s leading the pack with these types of claims.”
