Caraustar Industries, Inc. v. Factory Mutual Insurance Co., No. 1:10-cv-0006-SCJ (N.D. Ga. June 13, 2011): The Court granted summary judgment in favor of our client, Factory Mutual Insurance Company. Our client insured the plaintiff's properties under an all-risks insurance policy that contained a flood exclusion. In September 2009, the plaintiff's properties were damaged by a flood. On summary judgment, the Court held that the plain language of the policy clearly provided no coverage for the plaintiff's $22 million flood loss.
