Lawyers have become quite busy over the last fifteen years as Commercial General Liability (CGL) policies have become more restrictive in scope. I have covered this issue in the South Carolina Construction Defect blog in other posts over the past year. Today’s topic deals with the duty to defend a policyholder when he is either sued, or threatened with litigation. I find this to be a very important topic for insurance companies as well as builders as insurance coverage is state specific, and tends to vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
