Sletten v. Continental Casualty

Sletten v. Continental Casualty (March 19, 2015)

STATUS: 8th Circuit finds in favor of insurer.

8th.Cir.: Insurer Doesn't Have to Cover Online Libel Claim
In an interesting non-media decision, the 8th Circuit held that an insurer was not required to defend an insured who allegedly posted false and defamatory reviews of a business competitor.  Although the policy covered defamation in general, it excluded defamation with the intent to injure.
