Tred R. Eyerly - Insurance Law Hawaii

The Seventh Circuit reversed and remanded for consideration of reformation of the professional liability policy after the district court found there was no coverage. Crum & Forster Spec. Ins. Co. v. DVO, Inc., 939 F. 3d 852 (7th Cir. 2019).

WTE-S&S AG Enterprise, LLC sued DVO for breach of contract. DVO designed and built machinery for generating electricity from cow manure which would then be sold to the electric power utility. DVO and WTE entered a Standard Form Agreement for such machinery. DVO allegedly did not properly design substantial portions of the systems, resulting in substantial damages to WTE.
