The House of Mouse is being sued by an insurer, which maintains that it is unable to pay for the “second wave” of claims on delayed film and TV productions.
Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company filed a case against Disney in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The Los Angeles Times reported that the lawsuit disputed the entertainment giant’s claim for $10 million in insurance coverage for production delays.
Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company is a US subsidiary of Allianz.
In the complaint, the insurer explained that it is not disputing insurance claims made by Disney during the “first wave” of COVID-19 shutdowns in March 2020. Rather, the insurer noted that it should not have to cover for the “second wave” claims that happened after film and TV shooting was allowed to resume in California and other regions.
The insurer also explained in its complaint that Disney is not entitled to “cast coverage”
