Law360 Notes Haynes and Boone Representation of Advanced Environmental

11/02/2009

Wood composite materials maker Advanced Environmental Recycling Technologies Inc. has sought to appeal a ruling that an American International Group Inc. affiliate does not owe any defense coverage for claims that the company’s products are defective and vulnerable to unsightly mold and fungal growth.

Advanced Environmental filed a notice on Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas stating its appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit of a ruling issued on Sept. 30 in favor of American International Specialty Lines Insurance Co.

In that opinion, Judge Reed O’Connor said the insurer owed no duty to defend Advanced Environmental in the defective product suit because the claims were clearly barred under a “your work” exclusion, which applied to both a Coverage A and Coverage B section under the policy ...

Advanced Environmental is represented in its insurance case by Haynes & Boone LLP. American International is represented by Tucker Taunton Snyder & Slade PC and Bates & Carey LLP.
