Restaurant Devastated by COVID-19 Shutdown Sues Insurance Company for Payment Covered by its Policy Press Conference

Video playback of April 15, 2020 press conference via Zoom where Romanucci & Blandin founding partner Antonio Romanucci and attorneys from partner firms Rutter & Russin and Spangenberger, Shibley & Liber discuss the lawsuit filed on behalf of a Chicago restaurant whose insurance claim was denied for COVID-19 business losses. The suit was filed April 14, 2020 in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois. The plaintiffs are the owners of Maillard Tavern and the defendant is Society Insurance, to which the restaurant owner made contractual premium payments, expecting compensation during their time of need, according to the policy written by Society Insurance. The lawsuit is seeking a declaratory judgment from the court, meaning a decision that finds the insurance company owes the restaurant owners coverage and improperly issued a denial. The lawsuit is not seeking additional damages.
