No Coverage Owed For Claims Arising Out Of Spray Insulation, 5th Circuit Says
(January 5, 2016, 11:54 AM EST) -- NEW ORLEANS — The Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Dec. 23 affirmed a district court’s ruling that an insurer has no duty to defend its insured against underlying allegations arising out of the insured’s spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation because it is clear that the policies’ pollution exclusion precludes coverage for the underlying claims (Evanston Insurance Co. v. Lapolla Industries Inc., No. 15-20213, 5th Cir.; 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 22552).
