France’s Court of Cassation has ruled in favor of French insurer Axa SA, backing the company’s refusal to pay out restaurateurs for business interruption losses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and related administrative orders for closure, Time News reported. The court overturned four Aix-en-Provence Court of Appeal decisions, saying that Axa’s contract included a clause to deny payouts if “another establishment is subject to an administrative closure measure for the same cause.”
