Hawks ownership group argues that it was insured under a policy that covered employment-related losses that included individual acts of Wrongful Termination and Workplace Torts. The lawsuit states that the insurance company refused to acknowledge that Ferry had made a claim and that the policy was triggered, and they had refused to accept coverage of the insurance. The lawsuit is seeking a 50% penalty of the loss that has been unpaid as well as the attorney’s fees. Read more about Levenson on prnewswire.com.
