Practice Areas: General Liability

Insurer of building sued insurer of tenant for reimbursement of one half of judgment paid by insurer of building to person injured in fall on steps of insured’s building leading from tenant’s business, and for defense costs. The Superior Court, Law Division, Bergen County, granted summary judgment to insurer of building, and insurer of tenant appealed. The Superior Court, Appellate Division, Michels, P.J.A.D., held that insurer of building’s owner was entitled to reimbursement from tenant’s insurer, as substantial nexus existed between occurrence which caused injury, and use of leased premises.
