PolicyholderdroneimageScott Godes, partner and co-chair of the firm’s Data Security and Privacy Practice Group, was recently quoted in a Law360 article, “How to Navigate the Cloudy Skies of Drone Insurance.” The commercial drone industry has opened up a world of business opportunities – as well as often misunderstood risks and questions about insurance coverage. Scott discusses insurance coverage for the potential liabilities drone operators face. In response to a question about an exclusion in CGL policies, "One argument as to why the aircraft exclusion shouldn't apply is that it was written in the context of commercial aircraft. It almost certainly is not within the reasonable expectations of an insured that an exclusion for cars, boats, and airplanes would eliminate coverage for drones. I would posit that the exclusion doesn't apply to drones on that basis, if not others. The exclusion should be read narrowly, with the policy construed in favor of coverage."
