Appellate Division Rules That Insurer May Owe Coverage For Homeowner Providing Daycare

In reversing the trial court’s decision, the Appellate Division remanded this case for a plenary hearing to ascertain whether or not Bay State’s insured was watching children for a profit motive which arguably would fall under an exclusion for coverage.
