Star Insurance Company v. Hazardous Elimination Corp.

2007 WL 31659, (E.D.N.Y. 2007).  On behalf of an insurance policyholder, we secured judgment against its insurance carrier, requiring the carrier to defend and indemnify our client against a third party damages lawsuit.  The Federal District Court agreed with us that the carrier’s disclaimer was untimely and barred as a matter of law under NY Insurance Law §3420(d).  The court also awarded our client attorney’s fees and costs.
