Exclusion for Wear and Tear
Braden A. Borger, Author
Covered Events, Volume 2 Issue 1

In the second volume of this double-edition of Covered Events, Braden A. Borger, an Associate in the Litigation Department and a member of Defense Research Institute's Insurance and Commercial Litigation committees, summarizes the decision reached in McMahon v. State Farm Fire and Cas. Co., a ruling that granted State Farm's motion for summary judgment dismissing the plaintiff's claim.

Mr. Borger explains that the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania held that State Farm was not in breach of the insurance contract when it denied coverage of the homeowner's claim for costs of repair and damage resulting from a plumbing leak.
