Insured Stuck in British Columbia

The Supreme Court of Canada unanimously rejected an insured's attempt to avoid British Columbia Courts. The insured wanted a U.S. Court (U.S. District Court, Washington) to interpret its British Columbia insurance policies. The Insured believed it would receive a more favourable interpretation of the policies in Washington State, hence its desire to litigate in that forum. Branch MacMaster represented one of the insurers (Lombard).
