• Substitute Brief of the Respondent in D.R. Sherry Constr., Ltd. v. Am. Family Mut. Ins. Co., 316 S.W.3d 899 (Mo. banc 2010)
  • November 19, 2012
  • Law Firm: Jonathan Sternberg Attorney P.C. - Kansas City Office
  • Successful brief of respondent (appellee) before Supreme Court of Missouri for construction company policyholder in breach of insurance policy/vexatious refusal case. The Court restored the policyholder's $475,000 judgment against its commercial general liability insurer that a lower court previously had overturned. The opinion established that, in an "occurence-type" policy in Missouri, the date of a progressive injury began determines whether it is in the coverage period, not the date it eventually was discovered.
