The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals recently affirmed that Selective Insurance Company must defend and indemnify Johnson & Bell client, Target Corporation, in a federal lawsuit brought by a woman who claimed she sustained a traumatic brain injury when a dressing room door in a Target store fell on her. The federal trial court found that the retailer is entitled to coverage under the door supplier’s policy. The appellate opinion upheld the trial court’s ruling that Target qualifies as an additional insured under the door supplier’s commercial general liability policy. Target was awarded $714,000 to cover Target's defense and settlement costs. Representing Target were Johnson & Bell Shareholders, Robert M. Burke, Peter R. Ryndak, and Garrett L. Boehm, Jr. See the Law360 article (sub. req.) for more information on this ruling.
