Case reviews

2 April 2018
In the context of environmental property damage claims, proper allocation among insurers on the risk during the period of time such property damage is alleged to have taken place – which can span decades - is often a hotly contested topic. Significant in any such debate is the question of whether an insured must participate in the allocation as well. In KeySpan Gas East Corp. v. Munich Reinsurance America, Inc. et al., the New York Court of Appeals answered “yes”, finding, as a matter of first impression, that under “pro rata time-on-the-risk” allocation, policyholders bear the risk for years during which they did not have liability coverage, even if coverage for environmental liabilities was unavailable.
