Joseph Lavitt Thinks Storm Ruling Leaves Insurance Issue Unresolved

MSN Money, October 9, 2009 by The Associated Press

Joseph Lavitt, a Berkeley Law School professor who teaches insurance law, said the Supreme Court disagreed with part of the 5th Circuit’s ruling but didn’t address whether insurers are liable for damage “when either the wind or the water could have caused the loss without the other and they acted at the same time. The Corbans’ battle is far from over. Either party may yet prevail under today’s ruling,” he said.
