The Court of Appeals of Maryland held that for a third party complaint to trigger a “business pursuits” exclusion, the insurer must consider the insured’s business continuity and profit motive. Springer v. Erie Ins. Exch., 439 Md. 142, 146, 94 A.3d 75, 78 (2014). The court further held that the allegations made in the third party’s complaint were insufficient to trigger the “business pursuits” exclusion.
