Attorney Andrea Murdock Presents Oral Arguments at Seventh Circuit

Attorney Andrea Murdock presented oral arguments before the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago on February 10, 2014.

After prevailing at the district court, Andrea defended against an appeal filed by Chubb Indemnity Insurance Company concerning property insurance coverage issues. The district court held that Chubb was required to provide coverage for water intrusion damage to the Strausses’ home, which occurred continuously during and after Chubb’s policy periods. The district court entered a judgment in the Strausses’ favor on July 1, 2013. Chubb challenged the judgment based on coverage trigger theories, Wisconsin’s statute of limitations, and the policy’s suit limitation clause.

The Seventh Circuit took the matter under advisement, and a decision is expected later this year.
