The Connecticut Insurance Law Journal is excited to announce a new publication with our journal: “COVID-19 Business Interruption Insurance Losses: The Cases For and Against Coverage”, by Professor Christopher C. French, a Professor of Practice at Penn State Law; J.D., Harvard Law School; B.A., Columbia University.
From the abstract:
This is the first scholarly Essay to discuss the arguments for and against business interruption policies covering COVID-19 business interruption losses. In doing so, it sets forth the strongest arguments on each side of the fight regarding the meaning of the applicable policy language in the context of the existing caselaw and the purpose of business interruption insurance. It also addresses the insurance industry’s claim that pandemic losses are not covered by business interruption policies because such losses are simply uninsurable. Finally, it discusses the competing public policies that support each side.
Thank you Professor French and CILJ!
