June 6, 2016
TRENTON, N.J. — A New Jersey federal judge has awarded a mortgage servicing company and a flood insurer summary judgment in a Superstorm Sandy coverage action, ruling that the policy was effectively terminated more than three months before the claimed loss.
On May 26, Judge Mary L. Cooper of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey concluded that the insurer properly canceled the policy when the claimant, a third-party beneficiary of the policy, paid off his mortgage.
