2 Lawsuits Are Interrelated Wrongful Acts Under Policy, 4th Circuit Affirms
Mealey's (January 4, 2016, 11:21 AM EST) -- RICHMOND, Va. — The Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Dec. 30 affirmed a lower federal court’s finding that two underlying lawsuits against an insured involve interrelated wrongful acts and are, therefore, part of the same claim first made before the inception of the insured’s claims-made business liability insurance policy (W.C. & A.N. Miller Development Co. v. Continental Casualty Co., No. 14-2327, 4th Cir.; 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 22831).
