Maine Supreme Court to hear appeal in Vermont Mutual Insurance Co. v. Joshua Francoeur, et al.
The Maine Supreme Court will hear the case of Vermont Mutual Insurance Co. v. Joshua Francoeur, et al. at about 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 11.
Vermont Mutual Insurance Co. v. Joshua Francoeur et al., case number Yor-17-416, came to the Maine Supreme Court after the Vermont Mutual Insurance Co. argued the decision of the Superior Court.
Vermont Mutual argues that Francoeur "was not a resident of his father’s home at the time of the incident and therefore was not insured under the policy, the attack was not an 'accident' as that term is used in the policy and is therefore not a covered 'occurrence,' and the policy’s exclusion for intended or expected injury applies to bar coverage for the incident," the court states.
The original case revolved around of the homeowner’s insurance policy issued by Vermont Mutual Insurance Co. to Joshua Francoeur’s father covered an incident in which Francoeur allegedly physically attacked a fellow student at his school.
