Bristol West Ins. Co. v. Wawanesa Mutual Ins. Co., No. 08-2269
In a dispute involving the interpretation of an insurance contract, district court judgment is reversed where the plain language of the Out of State Coverage clause in the policy makes specific reference to any accident that occurs out of state, and does not focus on the limits of the out of the state financial responsibility law, and thus the insurance policy necessarily expands the amount of liability coverage in this case since the accident occurred in New Brunswick.
Appeal from the United States District Court for District of Maine.
Decided July 1, 2009
Before Lynch, Chief Judge, Farris and Howard, Circuit Judges.
Opinion by Lynch, Chief Judge.
