A group of restaurants in North Carolina has joined the North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association (NCRLA) in asking the North Carolina Supreme Court to bypass the Court of Appeals and consider an insurer’s appeal of a trial court decision that found there was coverage for COVID-19 business interruptions under the insurance policy.

North State Deli was the lead plaintiff in a group of 16 restaurants that filed the lawsuit seeking coverage for COVID-19 related business income losses. The case resulted in a rare win for the policyholders. More than 1,600 COVID-19 business interruption insurance coverage lawsuits have been filed and of the dozens that have been decided, most courts have found that the pandemic did not cause physical loss or damage to insured property.
