On April 21st, the Kentucky Court of Appeals issued a unanimous opinion in favor of Mehr Fairbanks Trial Lawyers’ client, the Greenville Cumberland Presbyterian Church. The Court of Appeals opinion reverses and remands the Muhlenberg Circuit Court’s decision to enter summary judgment in favor of State Auto Property & Casualty Company. State Auto had issued an insurance policy to the church but when the church roof collapsed, State Auto denied the claim. The Court of Appeals ruled that there was in fact insurance coverage for the church’s loss under the State Auto policy.
Mehr Fairbanks partner Bartley Hagerman wrote the briefs and argued the case before the Court of Appeals.
