A local youth sports club and its Board of Directors were sued by a player alleging sexual abuse committed by the spouse of a former Board member.  In 2023, the club’s liability insurance company filed a lawsuit against the local youth sports club.  In the lawsuit, the insurance company sought to limit its obligations to defend and indemnify the club against the underlying sexual abuse claims.  Harper | Hayes assumed the defense of the sports club, navigating the defense to a successful outcome for the club where the insurance company paid for the full defense of the sports club and settled all pending legal claims filed against the club.
