Mt. Hawley Insurance Co. v. Slay Engineering
A court of the Western District of Texas granted summary judgment in favor of an insured and against its commercial liability insurer finding the insurer had a duty to defend a general contractor in a construction defect case, where the policy's "your work" exclusion may not apply because of the subcontractor exception, and the breach of contract exclusion did not apply because other non-excluded causes of the property damage were alleged.
