Yetter Coleman Secures Unanimous Jury Verdict And Related Appeal for CenterPoint Energy, Inc.

Yetter Coleman assisted CenterPoint Energy with prosecuting claims against the insurance companies that issued Builder All Risk policies on CenterPoint’s “Line CP” project, a 172-mile natural gas pipeline in which an unanticipated drilling accident occurred. After being denied coverage by its insurer, CenterPoint sued for breach of the insurance contract. A jury unanimously found that the loss should be covered. On appeal, within six months of the verdict, we secured a net settlement for the client of 85% of its loss.
