Liquor Liability Exclusion Found Not To Apply Against a Multi-Claim Complaint

In the case of AIX Specialty Ins. Co. v. American Legion Department of Pennsylvania, No. 2:21-CV-023380-MAK (E.D. Pa. March 14, 2022 Kearney, J.), the court addressed a declaratory judgment action regarding coverage potentially owed to an American Legion relative to an underlying personal injury claim filed by a Plaintiff who was injured by a gun shot wound in an American Legion after the assailant was allegedly served alcohol while that assailant was allegedly visibly intoxicated.

After the court’s review of the liquor liability exclusion contained in the policy and determined that certain claims asserted by the Plaintiff could potentially fall within such coverages allowed by the policy, the court found that the exclusion at issue did not apply in this matter involving a multi-claim complaint.
