Who will pay Sandusky’s legal costs?

/ 24.Jul, 2012

A second law suit has been filed by an insurance company attempting to get a ruling that they do not have to pay Jerry Sandusky’s legal bills.  Last week, State Farm filed a federal lawsuit seeking a declaration that Mr. Sandusky’s home owner’s insurance policy will not pay for injuries caused by intentional, willful or malicious acts, and that they do not have to pay for defense of criminal or civil actions brought against Mr. Sandusky.  Last December, Federal Insurance Company, which insured Mr. Sandusky’s charity, The Second Mile, filed a similar action.  In June, the court ruled that Federal Insurance Co. had to keep paying for the defense costs, but would not have to indemnify for any judgments.
