An attorney for Syracuse University appeared in court Tuesday morning to argue a motion in a case against National Union Fire Insurance Company, an insurance carrier for SU during the Bernie Fine sexual abuse allegations. The university is suing National Union for refusing to cover expenses SU incurred in responding to subpoenas concerning the Fine allegations. Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood presided over a hearing of the motions for summary judgment at the Onondaga County Supreme Court. A motion for summary judgment is a request to the court for a formal decision without a full trial. In arguing the plaintiff’s motion for partial summary judgment, Kenneth Frenchman, SU’s attorney, requested the judge order National Union to pay for the losses incurred from the Fine subpoenas. A trial would still be necessary to determine the amount if SU’s motion for partial summary judgment is granted, according to documents from the New York State Unified Court System. Charles Stotter, one of the attorneys representing National Union, argued the defendant’s motion for summary judgment. He requested the court deny SU’s motion for partial summary judgment and grant summary judgment in favor of National Union. Some of the contended issues included whether the subpoenas allege a wrongdoing by SU under the insurance policy, whether the university has a legitimate claim under the policy’s language and whether SU was a target of the investigation.
