Panel: Intentional Acts Exclusion Bars Coverage For Invasion Of Privacy Lawsuit

(June 14, 2016, 9:28 AM EDT) -- TOPEKA, Kan. — A Kansas appeals court on June 10 affirmed a lower court’s ruling that insurers have no duty to defend or indemnify their insured against an underlying invasion of privacy lawsuit filed by three former female employees of the insured’s law office, rejecting the insured’s argument that the doctrines of waiver and estoppel create insurance coverage where such coverage did not exist otherwise (Mid-Century Insurance Company, et al. v. Jeremiah Johnson, No. 111,750, Kan. App.; 2016 Kan. App. Unpub. LEXIS 442).
