Insured Asks 10th Circuit To Certify Question Of Law To New Mexico High Court
(July 22, 2016, 9:20 AM EDT) -- DENVER — Because no New Mexico court has addressed the application of the “owned or occupied” exclusion in the context of environmental contamination to sovereign property, the 10th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals should certify a question regarding the exclusion’s application to the New Mexico Supreme Court, an insured maintains in a July 19 motion for certification of a question of state law (Taos Ski Valley Inc. v. Nova Casualty Co., No. 16-2118, 10th Cir.).
(Motion for certification available. Document #03-160727-001B.)
