Insurer Required to Cover Members’ Fire-Damaged Homes
Facts: A fire that started in one condominium unit spread to adjoining units, causing substantial fire and smoke damage. The insurer made payments to the association that covered damages to certain structural elements of the building, but did not cover individual members' damage to the interior of their units. Both parties argued over the extent of property coverage required by the association's governing documents. A trial court ruled in favor of the members, and the insurer appealed.
