DC Metro Sues Lexington For $13M Over 2009 Collision

Law360, New York (September 28, 2011, 3:41 PM EDT) -- The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority on Friday sued Lexington Insurance Co. in Virginia federal court for more than $13 million, accusing the insurer of failing to cover business interruption losses from a fatal 2009 train collision that disrupted service and cut ridership.

Boston-based Lexington has allegedly agreed to pay less than 10 percent of those losses, in breach of its commercial property policy with the mass transit operator, which serves Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, according to the complaint.
