Monarch Casino & Resort, Inc. v. Affiliated FM Insurance Co.
Year 2022
Court United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit
Case Number 22-1096
  • COVID-19
  • Colorado

In its amicus curiae brief, UP supports coverage for an insured’s business interruption losses related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19. UP’s brief specifically addresses the non-applicability of a “contamination” exclusion and the scope of the policy’s communicable disease coverage expansion. UP’s brief also counters standard insurance industry “cries of wolf” that holding insurance companies to their promises threatens market solvency.
