Hartford Fire Insurance Company v. Medline Industries, Inc. et al.
Year 2023
Court Appellate Court of Illinois, First Judicial District
Case Number 1-23-0841
  • Duty to Defend
  • Illinois

In its amicus curiae brief, United Policyholders addresses the question of whether a liability insurer has a duty to defend an underlying lawsuit alleging only willful and intentional wrongdoing by an insured defendant but when liability could be established by proof of non-intentional, accidental conduct. Drawing on case law from Illinois and around the country, United Policyholders argues that an insurer’s broad duty to defend is triggered in such situations.
