Washington National Insurance Corp. V. Sydelle Ruderman
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has asked this Court what Florida law requires in cases where the meaning of a provision in an insurance policy is ambiguous. Washington National argues there is no ambiguity in its home health care policy and cites various documents as proof. Ms. Ruderman and others argue language in the policy providing an 8 percent annual increase in benefits is ambiguous and should be interpreted in their favor.
