The insurer made a motion to dismiss the complaint brought by the insured pertaining to a denial of coverage for an advertising injury claim. This case is Purplus, Inc. v. Hartford Casualty Insurance, 2013 WL 1149768

Adobe filed a complaint against Purplus alleging causes of action for copyright and trademark infringement. Purplus had a liability policy issued by Hartford Casualty and tendered the complaint to Hartford. Hartford denied coverage. The insured retained legal counsel to defend itself and settled the case with Adobe. Purplus then filed a complaint against Hartford for declaratory relief claiming that the Adobe complaint triggered coverage under the Hartford policy. The insurer moved to dismiss the complaint.
