Sixth Circuit Holds Agent Had No Duty to Recommend Pollution Coverage

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals recently held that an insurance agent did not have a duty to advise a petroleum company that the company should obtain pollution coverage, which would have covered a costly diesel spill. See Hardy Oil Co., Inc. v. Well Fargo Insurance-Indiana, Nos. 13-6373/6445 (6th Cir. Sept. 22, 2014) (unpublished opinion).
