O’Melveny’s Schiavoni Quoted in Coverage Opinions on Asbestos Ruling

February 27, 2013

The February 27, 2013, edition of Coverage Opinions gives a brief overview of the tentative decision in Plant Insulation Company v. Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company and how it could affect future asbestos-related lawsuits against insurers. O’Melveny & Myers’ Tanc Schiavoni was quoted about the significance of the case. “The decision should serve as a guidepost to other courts struggling with the issue. By delivering certainty, this decision should significantly reduce coverage actions in an area that historically has been very litigious,” he said.
