Business Interruption Insurance Claims Filed For Local Clients Over COVID-19 Coverage


We filed a putative class action lawsuit for the Buttermilk restaurants located in Naperville, Geneva, and Vernon Hills, Illinois and the Hollywood Boulevard Cinema located in Woodridge, Illinois.  The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Chicago,  alleges that our clients had their business interrupted by the COVID-19 Pandemic and seeks to recover under business interruption insurance policies.

Courts in Illinois have not yet decided whether COVID-19 claims are covered by standard business interruption insurance policies. We expect this issue to be litigated extensively over the next several years.
