THE DEFENDANT NATIONAL UNION FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY OF
PITTSBURGH, PA’s MOTION IN LIMINE AND/OR MOTION FOR SUMMARY
JUDGMENT REGARDING CERTAIN CLAIMS OF THE PLAINTIFF STEWARD g
MACHINE COMPANY
The Defendant National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA ("National
Union") hereby moves in limine for a legal determination prior to trial with respect to certain of
the claims which have been asserted against it by the Plaintiff Steward Machine Company
‘ ("Steward"). Alternatively, National Union hereby moves for summary judgment with respect to
these claims.
Specifically, National Union seeks a legal determination with respect to the following:
1. As a matter of law, National Union is not liable for Steward’s claims of business
disruption and interference damages, because the surety’s liability under Conn.
Gen. Stat. § 49-42 and the bond does not extend to consequential damages, lost
. profits and breach of contract damages incurred by Steward on projects other than
the bonded proj ect;
2. As a matter of law, National Union is not liable for Steward’s "storage fee" claim,
because the surety’s liability under Conn. Gen. Stat. § 49-42 and the bond does
not extend to costs and expenses not actually incurred by the claimant, and Conn.
Gen. Stat. § 42a-2-710 — to the extent that it is applicable — limits Steward’s
recovery to costs and expenses actually incurred on the bonded proj ect; I
I 3. As a matter of law, the proper measure of National Union’s liability under Conn.
Gen. Stat. § 49-42 and the bond consists of Steward’s actual labor and material
costs incurred on the bonded proj ect; and

issues can be resolved as a matter of law based on undisputed facts, resolution of these issues

the matter. I
