Water Damage Exclusion Bars Coverage, 5th Circuit Affirms

(February 11, 2016, 2:20 PM EST) -- NEW ORLEANS — The Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Feb. 10 affirmed a lower federal court’s ruling that a commercial general liability insurance policy’s water damage exclusion bars coverage for an underlying claimant’s damages that arose from the intrusion of rainwater, rejecting the insured’s contention that the insurer committed breach of contract and bad faith (Mesa Underwriters Specialty Insurance Co. f/k/a Montpelier U.S. Insurance Co. v. LJA Commercial Solutions LLC, et al., No. 15-60360, 5th Cir.).
