Cherilyn Zavatsky | Bloomberg Law Citizens Insurance Co. of America v. Uncommon, LLC, No. 10 C 7764, 2011 BL 224228 (N.D. Ill. Aug. 31, 2011) The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ruled in favor of an insurer, concluding that a commercial general liability insurance policy exclusion for intellectual property claims applied to all counterclaims against the insured because each counterclaim arose out of the insured’s alleged trademark infringement. The court relied on the principle that factual allegations, not the legal theories underpinning claims against the insured, govern the insurer’s duties.
