COVID-19 and Unprecedented: Litigation Insights - Issue 30, November 2020

In this 30th issue of Unprecedented, our weekly update on COVID-19-related litigation, we continue to see cases challenging shutdown orders and capacity limits from restaurant and other business owners, including a possible lawsuit from Disney. We also touch on the increase in OSHA whistleblower complaints, yet another rising side effect in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also should come as no surprise that COVID-19-related insurance coverage cases are continuing to be filed, as policyholders fight for coverage under business interruption and other provisions, along with lawsuits against higher education institutions for reimbursement of fees. Finally, in a particularly egregious negligent exposure claim, we discuss a lawsuit filed by a Miami nurse, in which she alleges that a doctor purposely infected her with COVID-19. One thing is certain as we move through our 30th litigation update -- COVID-19 continues to present an array of legal issues and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
