Case Summary

S-20-0271 State Farm Fire & Casualty Company v. TFG Enterprise, LLC, and Jeffrey Leonard (Appellants) and Jeffrey Barkhurst

Douglas County District Court, Hon. J. Michael Coffey

Attorneys:                   William J. Hale, and Andrew W. Simpson (Goosmann Law Firm, PLC, for Appellants);

Patrick S. Cooper, and Brian J. Fahey (Fraser Stryker, PC, LLO, for Appellee)

Civil:                           Declaratory judgment; Liability under rental insurance policy

Proceedings below:     The district court concluded that there were no genuine issues of material fact and that State Farm’s motion for summary judgment should be sustained. The district court declared that State Farm owed no coverage obligation under rental dwelling policy of insurance.

Issues on Appeal: Whether district court erred when it 1) ruled that there was no “occurrence” which caused purported damage or triggered coverage; 2) ruled that there was no causal connection between any occurrence and property damage; and 3) ruled that policy exclusions barred coverage.
