Rondiene E. Novitz and Harpreet Kaur Successfully Brought Motion for Summary Judgement in Coverage Dispute

Following a deadly fire at a commercial property, the property owner’s insurer sought to rescind the policy based on material misrepresentations the property owner made in his application for insurance. The property owner brought suit against his insurer and insurance broker (our client), seeking $1.1 million in damages. Rondiene E. Novitz and Harpreet Kaur successfully brought a motion for summary judgment, arguing that an insurer waives its right to rescind and/or rely upon an alleged material misrepresentation where it affirmatively opts to renew the subject insurance policy.
