Minor League Baseball Team Pops Out on Business Interruption Claim

In the case of Lehigh Valley Baseball LP v. Philadelphia Indem. Ins. Co., Dec. Term, 2020, No. 00958, Control No. 21020014 (C.P. Phila. Co. June 17, 2021 Glazer, J.), the court ruled that the Plaintiff minor league baseball team failed to show that they sustained any direct physical loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that, as a result, the Plaintiffs were not entitled to recover under the business loss provision of their insurance policy.  

The court also found that a virus exclusion under the policy also barred the Plaintiff’s claims.
