Michael Currie successfully defended his client against an $850,000.00 breach of contract claim. A plaintiff claimed that the defendant insurance company unlawfully denied coverage for loss to the façade of his house, indisputably caused by long term water intrusion to the same. Currie argued the loss was excluded by the plain terms of the policy, while plaintiff argued that the policy was ambiguous and therefore should have been interpreted in favor of coverage. The Court agreed with Currie’s argument and dismissed the plaintiff’s claim.
