Claims Made During Extended Reporting Period Deemed Uncovered

James River Insurance Co. v. Alliance Children's Servs., Inc.

(D. Mass. May 8, 2009)

A CGL insurer sued its policyholder, seeking a declaration that it was not obligated to defend or indemnify it in an underlying wrongful death action because the claim was not made during the policy period. The court granted the insurer summary judgment, finding that the policy expressly required that, to be covered, a claim must be made during the policy period, not during the extended reporting period.
