Pennsylvania Majority Rejects Argument That Exclusion Is Contrary To Public Policy

(February 16, 2016, 12:22 PM EST) -- HARRISBURG, Pa. — A majority of the Pennsylvania Superior Court on Feb. 12 rejected an insured’s argument that a commercial general liability insurance policy’s employer’s liability exclusion as it relates to a “leased worker” is unconscionable and against public policy, affirming a lower court’s ruling in favor of an insurer in a coverage dispute arising from a workplace injury (Westfield Insurance Company v. Astra Foods Inc., et al., No. 1392 EDA 2014, Pa. Super.; 2016 Pa. Super. LEXIS 84).
