May 6, 2016

On Tuesday, May 3, 2016, McKool Smith secured a landmark decision for its client Warren Pumps LLC from New York’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, on an issue of first impression in New York. The decision In the Matter of Viking Pump, Inc. and Warren Pumps, LLC, Insurance Appeals held that standard form insurance policies containing “non-cumulation provisions” or “prior insurance provisions,” present in thousands of policies nationwide, allow a policyholder to obtain coverage for its full liability from policies covering any policy year in which some injury took place.
