Court: 
Alabama Supreme Court
Issue: 
Faulty Workmanship as an "Occurrence"
Petition for Re-hearing

In a recent decision, the Alabama Supreme Court left the ranks of the outlier courts, holding that faulty workmanship can be a covered “occurrence” under Commercial General Liability insurance policies. The insurer has filed a petition for re-hearing, which UP opposes. 

Read a recent decision with a similar holding from the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
