Richard Garner, of Collins, Roche, Utley & Garner LLC, sits down with the podcast to discuss a recent decision from the Ohio Supreme Court. In Ohio Northern University v. Charles Construction Services, Inc., the Ohio Supreme Court determined faulty workmanship, in and of itself, does not constitute an “occurrence.” Rich, who represented the prevailing insurer, discusses the specifics of the case and the attempts by the opposing parties to depart from existing Ohio precedent. Rich opines on whether this is a clear win for stare decisis. Rich concludes by explaining the wider importance of the decision and how it may affect construction coverage law in other jurisdictions.
