Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings Granted in Madison County, Il, Insurance Coverage Matter
James Craney and Joshua Edelson prevailed against an adverse insurance carrier on cross dispositive motions.  The insurer’s action for declaratory judgment alleged that its insured, represented by Craney Law Group, was not covered under their policy in relation to property damage that occurred as a result of alleged negligent misrepresentation.  The firm argued on behalf of its client that there was a duty to defend, as the underlying complaint did not allege intentional conduct, and that negligent misrepresentation constituted an “occurrence” under the policy.  The court agreed, granted the firm’s motion in relevant part, and dismissed the insurer’s demand for attorneys’ fees.
