Retail Sys., Inc. v. CNA Ins. Cos., 469 N.W.2d 735 (Minn. App. 1991) (full-text).
Factual Background Edit
A computer consultant filed a declaratory judgment action against its insurer seeking a declaration that its general liability policy provided coverage for the loss of a client’s computer tape and data and that the insurer was required to defend him against the client's action for damages.
District Court ProceedingsEdit
|“||The data on the tape was of permanent value and was integrated completely with the physical property of the tape. Like a motion picture, where the information and the celluloid medium are integrated, so too were the tape and data integrated at the moment the tape was lost.||”|
