Westrec Marina Mgmt., Inc. v. Arrowood Indem. Co., B195047

In a coverage dispute arising from plaintiff-insured's failure to timely report claims as required under its insurance policies, judgment denying relief on plaintiff's complaint against its liability insurer is affirmed where: 1) a letter from a third party claimant's attorney to plaintiff-insured was a "claim" within the meaning of plaintiff's insurance policies; 2) a later action filed by the third party claimant constituted the same claim; and 3) plaintiff-insured"s failure to timely report the "claim" after receiving the letter rendered its later notice of claim untimely.
