Are we there yet? Have we made it to the other side of this ordeal? It is no longer a nagging inquiry posed by young children on family car rides but a question in the back of the minds of the millions of people impacted by this pandemic. While the answer to that question may be evasive, we hope that your family, your friends, and even your work are providing a source of strength, stability, and encouragement.
 
Tracking and digesting recent legal opinions is certainly one way to keep our minds sharp and we hope you think so too. New York courts have started to thaw out, so-to-speak, and we are pleased to report a recent decision favorable to one of our client’s from the Southern District of New York regarding product recall insurance coverage. Meanwhile, class actions and arbitration provisions remain hot topics for the pens of jurists and lawyers in New Jersey state and federal courts.
 
As always, we appreciate the chance to catch up with you and we hope you enjoy this edition of HKM&P’s Case Alerts.
