AIX Specialty Insurance Co. v. Shiwach

Court: Tx 5-Dallas  12/18/2019  Medical Malpractice Insurer Erred By Refusing to Defend Lawsuit Arising Out of an Alleged Gang Rape

The Court found that a sexual abuse exclusion did not preclude a medical malpractice insurer's duty to defend a lawsuit arising out of a gang rape because the petition could be read to reasonably infer that negligence in managing the facility where the rape occurred was a separate independent cause of the underlying plaintiff's injuries.
