Exclusions Preclude Coverage In Insurance Bad Faith Suit, Divided Panel Rules

Mealey's (September 11, 2015, 10:28 AM EDT) -- WAUKESHA, Wis. — An insurer did not have a duty to defend an insured over claims that its improper installation of a water pump led to the pump coming unthreaded from piping and falling to the bottom of a well because exclusions to the insurance policy preclude coverage, a split Wisconsin Court of Appeals panel ruled Sept. 9 (Water Well Solutions Service Group Inc. v. Consolidated Insurance Co., No. 2014AP2484, Wis. App., Dist. 2; 2015 Wisc. App. LEXIS 657).
