Fortney & Weygandt, Inc. v. Am. Mfrs. Mut. Ins. Co., No. 05-4031

In a general contractor's suit against its insurers claiming that they had a duty to defend it in third-party litigation arising out of a construction dispute, judgment in favor of defendants is reversed as the exclusion provision at issue applies only to the cost of repairing or replacing distinct component parts on which the insured performed defective work.
