Wellpath Holdings, Inc. v. XL Insurance Company, et al
Year 2022
Court New York Appellate Division Second Department
Case Number 2021-08206
  • COVID-19
  • New York

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 argues that decades of case law demonstrate what the insurance industry and policyholders have long known: that “all risks” insurance policies protect insureds against a broad range of perils including carbon monoxide, odors, and viruses such as the one that causes COVID-19. UP’s brief also counters standard insurance industry talking points by showing that holding insurance companies to their promises to cover losses will not bankrupt the industry.
