Fulton County, Georgia (July 2015) - Kendall Law Group, LLC successfully represents insurer in case of first impression.
Previously, Georgia courts had not addressed which contractor’s scope of work should be considered when determining whether certain standard business risk exclusions apply to a general contractor’s claim for first-party coverage as an additional insured under its subcontractor’s Commercial General Liability policy: the general contractor’s scope or the subcontractor’s scope?
The Georgia Court of Appeals answered this question in favor of Kendall Law Group, LLC’s client, holding that business-risk exclusions in the insurance policy issued to the subcontractor exclude coverage for a general contractor’s first-party claim for reimbursement for damages to the project caused by the subcontractor’s faulty workmanship. In so ruling, the Court held that the general contractor’s scope of work is considered, not the subcontractor’s scope of work.

Kendall Law Group, LLC, along with ACLU of Georgia, filed a lawsuit challenging the unlawful termination of Johnny Cook. Mr. Cook was fired for expressing concerns on his personal Facebook profile that a child was left hungry and denied lunch at school. He joined a national debate focused on the well-being of children and adequacy of school lunch policies. When Mr. Cook refused to allow his voice, thoughts, property, and image to be hijacked, commandeered, censored, and illegally appropriated by the Haralson County school system, he was fired.
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution forbids government officials from retaliating against employees who speak out on their own time on important community issues, even if those issues are critical of government practices and policies.
The lawsuit argues that Mr. Cook’s First Amendment right to free speech was violated by the Haralson County School District and Superintendent Brett Stanton, both named as defendants.
