On July 12, 2013, the Georgia Supreme Court expanded covered damages in construction defect cases by broadening the definition of “occurrence,” yet left in place the insurer’s right to deny coverage based upon the lack of “property damage” and the business risk exclusions.

June 18, 2012), dramatically changing Georgia's ''Reservation of Rights'' law.

According to Hoover, a carrier cannot ''both deny a claim outright and attempt to reserve the right to assert a different defense in the future.'' Id. at *2.
