Defeated Motions for Summary Judgment on Pollution Exclusion Preserving $800 Million in Insurance

Hoke LLC won a landmark victory defeating motions for summary judgment that sought to apply the pollution exclusion to asbestos claims. It was both an important victory for the client as it preserved access to as much as $800 million in insurance for its asbestos claims, but it was also an important victory for policyholders as a whole because an adverse result would have provided precedent that would have endangered asbestos coverage for policyholders nationwide.
