After nearly eight years and an initial decision that their clients were owed only $500, Cozen O’Connor attorneys in Denver were successful in getting two area insurance company clients a $10.9 million jury award against an alarm monitoring company.

The insurers, Pennsylvania-based Commonwealth Insurance Co. and New Jersey-based United States Fire Insurance Co., joined forces with the company they insured, food distributor Core-Mark Midcontinent Inc., to sue alarm company Sonitrol Corp. for willful and wanton breach of contract after burglars broke into a Core-Mark warehouse and burned it down.
