Nationwide Ins. Co. v. Central Laborer’s Pension Fund

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Case Number: 
No. 12-1784
Decision Date: 
January 11, 2013
Federal District: 
S.D. Ill.
Dist. Ct. did not err in granting plaintiff-insurance company’s motion for summary judgment in action seeking declaration that it had no duty to defend or indemnify defendant-insured under terms of homeowner’s policy where defendant had been sued for credit monitoring and insurance expenses arising out of theft from defendant’s car of laptop and compact disk containing confidential and personal information that had been gathered during defendant’s employment. Terms of policy excluded coverage for property damage arising out of or in connection with defendant’s business, and defendant’s failure to safeguard compact disc was omission related to her job duties. Ct. also found that separate provision of policy that excluded coverage for damage to property in exclusive care of defendant also applied.
