Federal Insurance v. Sandusky, 4:11-cv-2375

On June 4, 2012, Chief Judge Kane granted in part Plaintiff’s motion for judgment on the pleadings.  In this action, Plaintiff Federal Insurance sought a declaration that the insurance policy provided to the Second Mile and its directors and officers did not cover costs associated with various civil and criminal actions against Defendant Gerald Sandusky related to allegations of child sexual abuse.  The Court found that the public policy of Pennsylvania precluded an insurance policy from reimbursing Defendant for any civil damage award that he may ultimately be found to owe arising from the sexual abuse of a child.  The Court reserved ruling on the question of whether the public policy of Pennsylvania barred insurance coverage for civil and criminal defense costs.
