The Indiana Repertory Theatre is suing its insurer over lost business income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A press release from Indianapolis law firm Plews Shadley Racher and Braun, says it filed the lawsuit on behalf of the IRT against the Cincinnati Casualty Company in Marion Superior Court last Friday.
The theater company is among many local arts organizations forced to cancel performances due to the pandemic. The IRT claims its insurance policy protects against a loss of income due to a forced suspension of business. Cincinnati Casualty is denying the claim saying there must be “physical” damage to the property.
