District Court Opines That The Words Used In An Insurance Policy Actually Mean What They Say
Many practitioners, both near and far, assert that a good number of our courts' opinions, whether at the state or the federal level, are simply "result oriented" decisions where the court has decided what result it wants to obtain and them "gerrymanders" the law to "justify" the result. In GS2 Engineering & Environmental Consultants, Inc. v. Zurich American Insurance Company and Steadfast Insurance Company, 2013 WL 3457098 (D.S.C., filed 9 July 2013), the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, Columbia Division, cannot be chided for a "result oriented" decision.
