Powell v. Alemaz, Inc., 335 N.J. Super. 33, 760 A.2d 1141 (App. Div. 2000)
Practice Areas: First Party, Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith
In a prospective tenant’s housing discrimination suit, the landlord filed a third party complaint to establish coverage under its business-owners liability insurance policy. The Superior Court, Law Division, Union County, entered summary judgment in favor of the insurer. Landlord appealed. The Superior Court, Appellate Division, Keefe, J.A.D., held that landlord’s alleged racial discrimination against prospective tenant was not “personal injury” and, therefore, was not covered.
