The outbreak of COVID-19 has spawned a number of recent lawsuits by policyholders seeking business interruption coverage for losses resulting from closure orders issued by government officials.  Below is a list of several such lawsuits filed to date.

  • Cajun Conti, LLC v. Certain Underwriters at Lloyd’s London  (restaurant seeks declaration that “because the policy provided by Lloyd’s does not contain an exclusion for a viral pandemic, the policy provides coverage to plaintiffs for any future civil authority shutdowns of restaurants in the New Orleans area due to physical loss from Coronavirus contamination.”)
