RECENT DECISION BY THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK ON THE USE OF SPECIAL INTERROGATORIES AND ALLOCATION OF COVERED AND UNCOVERED DAMAGES
When it comes to handling claims involving covered and uncovered damages, New York courts have provided insurers with little guidance regarding the liability to pay damages on behalf of an insured for an undifferentiated verdict. This month, however, the Southern District of New York issued a novel decision on the issue in Uvino v. Harleysville Worcester Insurance Company, 2015 WL 925940, No. 13-4004 (S.D.N.Y. Mar. 4, 2015).
