As the wave of COVID-19 litigation builds, swimming in Georgia’s COVID-19 litigation waters are several purported class action suits brought on behalf of policyholders. In one of the earliest-filed cases, class representative Windy Hill Dentistry sued eight Hartford subsidiaries, claiming The Hartford wrongfully denied the dental practice and other similarly situated business owners’ claims for lost income resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. Windy Hill Dentistry, LLC, et al. v. The Hartford Fin. Servs. Grp., Inc., et al., No. 1:2020cv02000 (N.D. Ga. filed May 8, 2020). The complaint alleges that the class consists of: all natural persons and/or dental practice groups in the United States who purchased from Defendants a Business Owner policy of insurance, with Business Income, Civil Authority and/or Extra Expense coverage, who were subject to federal recommended guidelines or state directives to limit, suspend or cancel non‑emergent and elective procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic. Id. at ¶ 84.
