Business Interruption Insurance Amicus Brief

By NYC Hospitality Alliance

The New York City Hospitality Alliance joined the New York State Restaurant Association and the Restaurant Law Center (Counsel of Record JENNER & BLOCK LLP) in filing an amici brief in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

The brief in 10012 Holdings Inc. v. Sentinel Insurance Co., et al., argues that insurers have wrongfully denied restaurants’ Business Interruption Insurance claims under “all risk” policies during the COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
“It’s important that we work to right the wrongs restaurants have endured over the past year—wrongs that have been exacerbated due to insurers’ malfeasance,” added Andrew Rigie, Executive Director of NYC Hospitality Alliance. “We’re glad to join the Restaurant Law Center in its efforts to hold insurers accountable and compel them to provide restaurants with the business interruption insurance benefits they are rightfully due.”
