Insurer Won't Pay For Gun Club Lead Damage
Lloyd's of London says the liability insurance it provides for the Ashland Gun Club covers bodily injury and property damage, but it won't pay any damages related to lead contamination from ammunition.
The Mail Tribune reports underwriters filed documents in federal court in Medford after three gun club neighbors sued the city and the club, which sits on city land.
The neighbors say the gun club is contaminating soil and water. They want the club to pay fines, legal fees and damages.
The gun club president declined to comment on the case.
