The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has sided with insurers in the ongoing national debate over whether businesses should be entitled to coverage for lost income as a result of government shutdown orders during the pandemic.

A three-judge federal appellate panel ruled in favor of Acuity Insurance Co. on Wednesday after a Medina, Ohio, Italian restaurant owner sued the insurer under its commercial property insurance seeking reimbursement for lost income as the result of statewide COVID-19 shutdown orders.
