In a complaint removed to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on Oct. 9, Rhythm of Life Corp. d/b/a Broadway Dance and Broadway Dance West 65th LLC contends that as a result of the orders and the COVID-19 virus itself, their insured properties have suffered “direct physical loss and damage” triggering coverage under the policy.
