Sloane and Walsh, LLP partner, Laura Gregory, has been quoted in an article posted on BusinessInsurance.com which we invite you read (link below).
The complete quote: Laura Gregory, a partner with Sloane &Walsh LLP I Boston, who represents both insurers and policyholders, said, “It will be cited by anyone who’s attempting to get first party coverage for this type of coverage for this type of damage, because it expands what has been done in this area. So I expect unless it’s overturned, it’s going to get a fair amount” of attention. “Whether other courts follow it is another question.”
The article addresses a recent case finding coverage for a ransomware attack under a BOP policy.
It will be interesting to see if the decision is appealed and also how the decision is used in other litigation involving ransomware attacks.
