California Supreme Court Review: April 2023 (Daily Journal)

In this month’s Daily Journal column, Intellectual Property Litigation partner Andrew Ong, and Complex Litigation & Dispute Resolution associates Ariel Rogers and Yoona Lee review cases related to insurance coverage for losses due to COVID-19. In the past six months, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sent two COVID-19-related cases to the California Supreme Court, asking the Court to answer questions of state law. These upcoming decisions will not only address a split in California authority, they will also impact how lower courts interpret contracts and how insurance providers draft policies for viral contaminations.
