Visteon Corporation v. National Union Fire Insurance

<> Visteon Corporation v. National Union Fire Insurance - 1/23/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit, Case No. 14-2725. Visteon, a large manufacturer of automotive parts, with manufacturing facilities scattered around the world but its headquarters in Michigan, brought this diversity suit for breach of contract against the National Union insurance company. 
     The Appeals Court rules: "We note finally that the pollution-exclusion clause is unambiguous, and therefore National Union had no duty to defend Visteon against the suits brought against it by neighboring landowners who experienced losses because of the leak of TCE from Visteon's Connersville plant. Visteon has failed to make a case. The judgment in favor of National Union is therefore affirmed.
