A multidistrict litigation panel will hear arguments Thursday on whether to consolidate more than 100 federal court lawsuits that have accused insurance companies of wrongfully denying business interruption insurance as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

On one side are plaintiffs lawyers who argued that it would be more efficient to consolidate the claims and have a single court decide threshold questions.
