Baiden & Associates, Inc. v. Crum & Forster Specialty Insurance Co. The complaint cites the Certain Underwriters at Lloyds, London policy by policy number, coverage period and coverage limits; the plaintiff-contractor attached to its complaint a certificate of insurance which reflected certain key information about the Lloyds policy; the contractor alleged that, under the insurance policies at issue, including the Lloyds policy, the duty to defend was triggered by the allegations in a state-court complaint that the insured subcontractors’ work resulted in property damage; and the complaint recited language from the policies at issue, including the Lloyds policy. Therefore, the contractor’s complaint is sufficient to advise Lloyds of the event being sued upon.
