Really nice post the other day by our friends at DC-based Dickstein Shapiro on the recent change in tide on something that we in Oregon tend to take for granted: that construction defects that have resulted in property damage may be covered under the standard CGL policy.  Oregon courts have long employed a slightly different interpretation of the term “occurrence” in the standard coverage grant, which is one reason that Oregon has been in what is now the majority on this issue from the beginning of the construction defect boom.
