Defense Department Pursuit of Insurers for Superfund Cost Recovery
JUDGE ADVOCATE GENERAL'S SCHOOL CHARLOTTESVILE VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The military has a substantial financial interest in pursuing government contractors insurance carriers for indemnification of Superfund response costs paid by the government. The issue of the scope of coverage under the comprehensive general liability policy for environmental and hazardous waste cleanup costs is heavily litigated in all courts. The courts addressing the issues have unnecessarily created a patchwork of inconsistency, rendering the decision of whether to litigate a difficult one for the military.
