Judge Wilson's ruling against insurance coverage for Hotal Roanoke convention center upheld
In Hotel Roanoke Conference Center Commission v. Cincinnati Ins. Co., the Fourth Circuit in a per curiam opinion for the panel of Judges Wilkinson, Traxler, and Duncan affirmed Judge Wilson's decision in the dispute about whether there was insurance coverage for the damages sustained by Conference Center when its new building adjacent to the Hotel Roanoke went bad. The issue on appeal was whether the Commission's insurance covered its losses from what happened to the building. Paul Beers argued for the Commission and Phil Anderson argued for the insurer.
