From FC&S Legal: The Insurance Coverage Law Information Center: Court Uses Endorsement¹s Exclusion to Interpret Policy Exclusion, Finding Coverage.
A federal district court in Illinois, relying on the text of an exclusion in an endorsement to interpret an exclusion in a
homeowner’s policy, has found coverage for an underlying plaintiff’s lawsuit against the insureds.
The Case: Joseph Panfil and Renee Michelon sued Nautilus Insurance Company, seeking an order that it was obligated to defend them in an underlying lawsuit brought by a person who worked for a subcontractor they had hired. Nautilus contended that an “employee exclusion” in the policy precluded its duty to defend.
The Policy: An endorsement in the policy excluded coverage for: bodily injury to employees arising out of the course of their employment.
