Hotel Owner’s Del. COVID-19 Coverage Action Dismissed for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction

  • Order

WILMINGTON, Del. — A Delaware judge has dismissed a New York hotel owner’s COVID-19 coverage action for lack of personal jurisdiction, ruling that the insurer, a New York corporation, did not transact business in Delaware for the purpose of the state’s long-arm statute.

In a March 1 order, Judge Mary M. Johnston of the Delaware Superior Court explained that the plaintiff’s cause of action did not arise from third parties formed under Delaware law, rather it arose from a policy issued by a New York insurer to cover a New York property.
