Stonewall Ins. Co. v. E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., 523, 2009
In an action against an insurer seeking coverage for underlying litigation involving defects in a product for use in polybutylene plumbing systems, partial judgment for both parties is affirmed in part where 1) plaintiff-s production of an unsuitable product triggered only one single occurrence under the policies; and 2) the motion judge correctly applied the unambiguous noncumulation clause and reduced defendant-s liability properly. However, the judgment is reversed in part where the trial court incorrectly calculated the prejudgment interest accrual date.
