Summary Judgement Ruling Avoids $2.5M Insurance Payout

Kelly Santini’s Mitch Kitagawa successfully brought a motion for summary judgment to dismiss the plaintiff’s action in Mississippi River Corporations v. Municipal Electric Association Reciprocal Insurance Exchange 2014 ONSC 3784. In the ruling, Justice M.Z. Charbonneau agreed that the costs associated with the plaintiff’s voluntary decision to conduct repairs to its hydroelectric facility in Almonte, Ontario were not covered by its business interruption insurance coverage.
