Feb 24, 2022

A California judge rejected the National Hockey League’s effort to collect more than $1 billion from an insurance company to compensate it for losses caused by the shuttering of arenas during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a tentative ruling Wednesday, Santa Clara Superior Court Judge Sunil Kulkarni dismissed the league’s argument that the spread of Covid-19 damaged its properties resulting in loss of revenue.
