POLICY QUESTIONS –  Allow us to start your day off with some good news. Well, actually, it’s really only good news if you’re a plaintiffs lawyer with a pending COVID-19 business interruption case. If you’re an insurance defense lawyer, it’s actually kind of bad news. But hey, it’s Friday! That’s good news for everyone, right? Anyway, our latest Law.com Litigation Trendspotter column examines how the tides of business interruption litigation may be turning in policyholders’ favor thanks to a recent string of important, albeit preliminary, victories for plaintiffs. What’s becoming clear is that the ultimate fate of many these cases nationwide will depend on how different courts interpret insurers’ policy language through the unique lens of the pandemic—and those interpretations may vary widely. While you’re waiting to see how that all shakes out, be sure to head over to our new Litigation: Editor’s Picks package on Law.com, where we round up the best of our litigation trend analysis and in-depth commentary from practitioners and judges, along with our coverage of key players, breaking news, game-changing rulings, major recoveries and international cases.
