Terry Black’s Barbecue, LLC v. State Automobile Insurance Co.
The magistrate judge found that the insurer did not breach its contract in denying coverage, as the insured did not establish "direct physical loss of or damage to property" as a result of the spread of COVID-19, and, moreover, the Restaurant Extension Endorsement required a showing that the civil authority orders at issue were the direct result of actual or alleged exposure at the premises, which had not been shown.
