Opinions April 10, 2020

The following 7th Circuit Court Opinion was posted after IL deadline on Thursday.
Markel Insurance Company v. Lillian Rau
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, Hammond Division. Judge Holly Brady.
Civil. Affirms the Northern District Court’s finding that Markel Insurance Company had no obligation to United Emergency Medical Services or its employee under the insurance policy after one of United’s ambulances crashed into a vehicle, killing Chester Stofko. Finds Lillian Rau’s argument that equity requires coverage for the ambulance is not persuasive. Finds that because Markel did not endorse a change to the policy, the ambulance was not covered. Also rejects Rau’s attempts to raise the argument Markel should be estopped from denying coverage for the ambulance as a matter of public safety.
