Harsco Corporation v. Scottsdale Insurance Company

Year: 2023
Court: Indiana Supreme Court
Case Number: 21A-PL-02483

In its amicus curiae brief, United Policyholders advocates explicitly overturning Indiana’s overbroad “neutral stance” rule formulated in the case Indiana Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company v. Statesman Insurance Company, which declines to extend the benefit of the longstanding contra proferentem rule to parties who have not directly paid insurance premiums.
