Sixth Circuit affirms coverage decision

Cathy Sewell successfully represented an insurance carrier in a declaratory rights action in federal court.  The carrier had issued a Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy to a company in the electronics industry.  The insured hired an individual that had previously worked at a different electronics company.  The former employer sued the employee for breach of his employment agreement and for disclosing proprietary information.  The former employer also sued the insured for alleged interference with contract.  The carrier filed a declaratory judgment action in federal court and argued that the CGL policy did to provide coverage.  The District court agreed, and the Sixth Circuit affirmed the verdict.  You can read the full opinion here.
