Rehearing on Crossmann v. Harleysville Ordered

Contractors looking for state supreme court reversal

On March 9, 2011, the South Carolina Supreme Court granted a petition for a rehearing on the controversial CrCrossmann v. Harleysvilleossmann v. Harleysville decision, which was the subject matter of two prior blog posts.*

Hopefully, the South Carolina Supreme Court will reverse its earlier unfortunate decision that not only perverted the intent of the drafters of the General Liability policy, but also insulted builders by stating that property damage which results from faulty construction is always expected and intended.

Oral arguments will be held on May 23, 2011. Expect the insurance industry to be opposed by various contractor trade associations.

Stay tuned.
