JACKSONVILLE — A Delaware corporation has filed suit against an insurance company for allegedly withholding reimbursement, which violates its insurance policy.
Crowley Maritime Corporation filed a complaint on Aug. 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Jacksonville Division, against National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh PA, citing alleged breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Crowley Maritime Corporation was issued an executive and organization liability insurance policy by the defendant that provided coverage for claims made against any insured, including defense costs.
