Penn-America Ins. Co. v. Lavigne, 09-2059

In an insurer's suit against its insured and plaintiff seeking a declaratory judgment that the insured's insurance policy excluded liability coverage for claims arising from roofing, arising from serious injuries sustained by plaintiff when a portion of a scaffolding snapped while visiting his friend, the insured, at the job-site, a grant of summary judgment in favor of the insurer is affirmed where: 1) the only language added to Endorsement A plainly expresses the intent of the parties to exclude claims arising from roofing; and 2) there is no dispute that plaintiff's injuries originated from, grew out of, flowed from, or had a connection with, roofing.
