NJ Appellate Division Approves Auto Policy's Family Member Exclusion

July 7, 2009

In Cassini v. Soussou, the Appellate Division ruled that an injured driver could not recover from an excess policy purchased by the son of the defendant, due to an exclusion denying coverage when use of a family member owned vehicle other than the named insured's " covered auto" was involved. The Court found the exclusion to be unambiguous, and that excluding coverage for a separately insured family member's use of a noncovered auto was not uncommon, was legally sound and was supported by the policy.
