Charlotte team wins motion to dismiss for Smithfield

June 16, 2008

McGuireWoods convinced a federal judge in the Eastern District of North Carolina to dismiss an insurance coverage lawsuit filed by an insurance company against several Smithfield affiliates. The insurance company sued the Smithfield companies in North Carolina seeking a ruling that it owed no coverage for a nuisance lawsuit filed in Missouri state court. The judge's ruling means that Smithfield can litigate the insurance coverage issues in Missouri state court, where the underlying nuisance lawsuit is pending.
