Schnader Attorneys File Amicus Brief on Behalf of Aviation Insurance Association

On May 27, 2014 by Schnader in Aviation

Schnader attorneys Bruce M. Strikowsky and Barry S. Alexander filed in Texas on behalf of the Aviation Insurance Association an amicus brief in an insurance coverage case arising out of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The Texas Supreme Court will determine whether BP is entitled to additional insured coverage from the liability insurers for the oil platform operator, Transocean. In addition to resolving a claim for as much as $750 million of insurance, the Court is expected to consider whether rules of construction used against insurance companies should be applied for the benefit of sophisticated insureds.
