Librarian Claims Wrongly Accused & Personal Injury in Lawsuit
Parker McCay has gone to federal court to compel its insurers to cover a suit by a law librarian who was wrongly accused of setting off a false fire alarm and dismissed. Although Sheila Ciemniecki is suing for wrongful termination and malicious prosecution, the Mount Laurel firm argues that her claims sound in personal injury, since she alleges pain, suffering and mental anguish that required medical and professional treatment. Such damages fall under the policies' definition of bodily injury, the firm argues in Parker McCay v. Hartford Fire Insurance Co., 12-2971. The carriers disagree, maintaining that no evidence has been offered to demonstrate a physical manifestation of emotional distress suffered by plaintiff.
