County of San Diego vs. Ace Property & Casualty Insurance Company
Year 2002
Court California Supreme Court
Case Number S114778
  • Damages
  • California

The “damages” in an insurance policy should be interpreted broadly to include much more than simply monies ordered by a Court. Even if a standard CGL policy is limited only to monies ordered by a Court, Umbrella Policies, such as the one in issue here were specifically intended to provide broader coverage and fill gaps otherwise left uncovered in standard CGL policies.
