POLLUTION EXCLUSION. In two recent cases, the Wisconsin Supreme Court held that while decomposing septage and manure seeping into a water supply are occurrences under the respective insurance policies, coverage is precluded by each policy’s pollution exclusion clause as septage and manure qualify as pollutants. Preisler v. General Cas. Ins. Co., 2014 WI 135; Wilson Mut. Ins. Co. v. Falk, 2014 WI 136.

INSURANCE COVERAGE: Insurance policy provided coverage for replacement of all siding on buildings, and not just the damaged siding panels, because there was no reasonable color match for the siding. Cedar Bluff Townhome Condominium Ass’n, Inc. v. American Family Mut. Ins. Co., No. A13-0124, (Minn. December 17, 2014).

WHISTLEBLOWER ACTION: for whistleblower claims arising under Minn. Stat. § 181.932, subd. 1(1), the applicable statute of limitations is six years, as provided for under Minn. Stat. § 541.05, subd. 1(2). Ford v. Minneapolis Public Schools, No. A13-1072 (Minn. Ct. App. Dec. 15, 2014).
