Liability Insurer – Summary Judgment Granted in Environmental Coverage Litigation

Secured the dismissal of all claims against a liability insurer in environmental coverage litigation with the State of New York, concerning a petroleum discharge from an upstate New York gas station.  Agreeing that coverage was excluded under our client’s liability policies, the court granted our motion for summary judgment while denying summary judgment motions brought by two of the other liability insurers of the company that supplied petroleum to the station,  which the State claimed was the responsible discharger under the NY Navigation Law.
