Covington Secures Appellate Victory in Sears Coverage Case


WASHINGTON, DC, October 9, 2007 — On October 4, 2007, the California Court of Appeal unanimously affirmed a $26.6 million judgment for Sears, Roebuck and Co. against an AIG affiliate for losses covered under a CrimeGuard insurance policy. Covington & Burling LLP has represented Sears at both the trial and appellate levels since the lawsuit was filed in 2001 to seek insurance recovery for losses resulting from a misappropriation of funds by the former CEO of a media placement agency that secured advertising time for Sears and other companies. The policy at issue carried a $20 million limit.

The Covington litigation team was led by partners William F. Greaney, Patricia A. Barald, and Allan B. Moore, with assistance from Laird Hart and Deanna Wilcox. All are based in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office.
