CLG Prevails against Motion to Dismiss in Insurance Coverage Case
Craney Law Group defeated a motion to dismiss, on behalf of its insurance company client, in St. Louis County, Missouri circuit court.  In Shelter Mutual Insurance Co., v. Aspen Touch, LLC, and Orange Computers Inc., defendant argued that the coverage issue was not ripe for review and sought to dismiss the entire declaratory action. The Honorable Judge McShane in St. Louis County ruled that the declaratory judgment defendan had failed to provide a basis to dismiss the declaratory judgment action, stating that “Shelter acted within [] its rights by choosing to defend Aspen Touch under a reservation of rights and filing a declaratory judgment action to determine the policy’s coverage in connection with the underlying action.”
