The top story this morning is a judge ruling that the insurance company from which Jerry Sandusky was seeking coverage is not responsible for indemnifying him for damages that may arise from the sexual abuse allegations against him. As reporter Saranac Hale Spencer writes, the judge also discussed whether or not Federal Insurance Co. would be obligated to pay for his defense, but deferred answering the question until discovery provides a factual record.
Also above the fold on Page 1, reporter Gina Passarella writes that District Attorney Seth Williams’ campaign’s email inviting deputies and chiefs to a fundraising event is unlikely to spur any local inquiry.
Below the fold on Page 1, reporter Ben Present writes that 18 law firms responded to a request for bids to work on the possible sale of Philadelphia Gas Works, an indication that the city might be able to shed itself of the largest municipally owned gas utility left in the country.
In this week’s GC Mid-Atlantic column on Page 5, Sharon Berman writes about what in-house counsel want from attorneys and law firms.
In a Commentary on Page 7, Tiffani L. McDonough writes about the five-year plan that every lawyer should have.
