Cedar Bluff Townhome Condominium Assn. v. American Family Mutual Ins. Co.

December 17th, 2014

Minn. Sup. Ct. has held that an appraisal panel did not err in deciding that the replacement of damaged siding required replacement of all siding on the buildings to achieve a reasonable color match. In doing so, the Court put to rest the issue of whether matching is within the purview of the appraisers or poses a legal/coverage question. It placed matching within the appraisers’ authority to decide.
