The FBD Judgement on Friday the 5th of February, in the case brought by several publicans against FBD in relation to Business Interruption cover, was the first legal opinion in an Irish jurisdiction in relation to business interruption cover, as a result of COVID-19. This followed on, and was broadly in line with, the FCA Supreme Court test case in the UK published on the 15th of January. Both judgments have finally brought some clarity regarding the extent of cover, if any, offered by various insurers’ business interruption policies.
