Georgia Panel Affirms Judgment In Favor Of Insured, Says Coverage Was Triggered

Mealey's (September 6, 2016, 11:27 AM EDT) -- ATLANTA — The Fourth Division Georgia Court of Appeals on Aug. 31 affirmed a trial court’s judgment that an excess insurer owes coverage for environmental contamination arising out of a pipeline leak because the excess insurer’s policy provides coverage for occurrences that arise during the policy period and does not require that the actual injury or property damage occur during the policy period (Columbia Casualty Co. v. Plantation Pipe Line Co., No. A16A0705, Ga. App., 4th Div.; 2016 Ga. App. LEXIS 496).
