Ellen M. Spindler recently won summary judgment in a declaratory judgment action seeking additional insured coverage for the New York City School Construction Authority, City of New York and Board of Education of the City of New York ("the City Plaintiffs") with respect to an underlying tort action involving an injury to an employee of a general contractor caused by a fall from a ladder attached to an asbestos container on site to dispose of asbestos waste. Judge Herman Cahn, of New York County Supreme Court, ruled that, despite the dismissal of the asbestos subcontractor from the underlying tort action, Lumbermen's Mutual Casualty, the carrier for the asbestos subcontractor owed a duty to defend the City Plaintiffs as additional insureds under a policy of insurance issued to the named insured asbestos subcontractor as that policy provided coverage for bodily injury arising from your "work", defined to include work or operations performed by the subcontractor and materials, parts or equipment furnished in connection with such work and also denied Lumbermen's cross-motion seeking a declaration that there was no duty to defend or indemnify the City Plaintiffs. Judge Cahn relied on the recent Appellate Division, First Department decision of Worth Construction Company, Inc. v. Admiral Insurance Company, 40 A.D.3d 423, 836 N.Y.S.2d 155 where the Court found that it was sufficient that an injury occurred on stairs to trigger additional insured coverage by a policy of insurance issued to the stairway subcontractor, despite its dismissal from the action.
