  • In an earlier issue of this newsletter, we reported on the Owners Insurance Company v. Jim Carr Homebuilder, LLC case, in which the Alabama Supreme Court held that a general contractor's faulty workmanship on a home was an "occurrence" invoking coverage only if it resulted in damage to other property outside the scope of that contractor's work. The Court last week withdrew its earlier opinion in Jim Carr and returned to a more expansive view of liability coverage in the context of construction claims.
