Weekly Fourth Circuit Summaries

StarStone Specialty Insurance, the Fourth Circuit held that the insurance claim of Affinity Living Group (an operator of adult care homes) for Medicaid reimbursements was an extension of its insurance policy with StarStone Specialty Insurance, which covered claims “‘arising out of a medical incident.’”
