5th Cir. Upholds Dismissal of Dallas Law Firm’s COVID-19 Coverage Action
June 10, 2022
DALLAS — A 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel has upheld dismissal of a COVID-19 coverage action filed by a law firm with offices in Dallas and Atlanta, and a Dallas property owner, finding they failed to allege “physical loss or damage” to covered property, as required by the policy, issued by The Cincinnati Insurance Co.
In a June 9 opinion, the appellate panel agreed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas that there was no “tangible alteration or deprivation of property,” as required under Texas law.
