Mealey's (June 6, 2016, 11:46 AM EDT) -- NEW YORK — The Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on June 1 reversed and remanded a lower federal court’s ruling that a commercial general liability insurance policy’s knowing violation exclusion precludes personal and advertising coverage for two class action lawsuits alleging that the insured conspired with two companies to deceptively trap customers into recurring credit card charges (National Fire Insurance Company of Hartford, et al. v. E. Mishan & Sons Inc., No. 15-2248, 2nd Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 10151).
