Molotsky and Vodzak Obtained Summary Judgment

Allan Molotsky and Matthew Vodzak recently obtained summary judgment in Philadelphia in an insurance coverage action. FHMS represented an insurance company that insured a restaurant under a general liability policy. One of the restaurant’s employees killed a co-employee while at work. The deceased employee’s estate sued the restaurant, and the restaurant sought insurance coverage from FHMS’s client. FHMS successfully argued that the terms of its client’s insurance policy excluded coverage for the deceased employee’s lawsuit against the restaurant. The court granted FHMS’s motion for summary judgment, and held that FHMS’s client had no duty to defend the restaurant.
