Pennsylvania Supreme Court To Possibly Cure Epidemic of COVID-19 Business Interruption Coverage Cases

According to a recent July 14, 2023 article in the Pennsylvania Law Weekly entitled “Pa. Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Arguments in Two Diverging COVID-19 Business Interruption Cases,” by Marianna Wharry, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has granted allocator to hear arguments in the case of MacMiles v. Erie Insurance Exchange and the case of Ungarean v. CNA and Valley Forge Insurance

In these two (2) cases, the Pennsylvania Superior Court reached opposite conclusions regarding whether insureds should be allowed business interruption insurance coverage for losses stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

I send thanks to Attorney Scott B. Cooper of the Harrisburg, PA law firm of Schmidt Kramer for bringing this development to my attention.
