HB Attorneys Prevail in Bench Trial in Schuyler County, Illinois

Attorneys Jennifer Martin, Michael Murphy, and Melissa Brown (of HB’s Springfield office) and Gary Meadows (of the Edwardsville office) obtained a judgment in favor of the firm’s clients after a bench trial in Schuyler County, Illinois. The case involved a dispute over insurance coverage for an underlying nuisance suit filed against a livestock management facility (LMF) by neighboring landowners. The circuit court ruled that the insurer could not deny coverage to the LMF based on the policies’ notice provisions and that the LMF’s manager was an additional insured under the policies.
