A federal judge in California has ruled that Sacramento Downtown Arena, LLC (Downtown Arena), who runs the home court for the Sacramento Kings basketball team (Kings), may proceed with its suit for wrongful coverage denial against Factory Mutual Insurance Company (Factory Mutual). The case is called Sacramento Downtown Arena LLC v. Factory Mut. Ins. Co., 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 197116 (E.D. Cal. 2022).
Downtown Arena, which also owns a hotel and outdoor mall near the basketball arena, was forced to close all three spaces in 2020 in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Golden 1 Center, the home court of the Kings, was forced to cancel a Bon Jovi concert, the Sacramento State graduation ceremony, and other notable events in addition to all of the basketball games. The hotel and outdoor mall expended funds for extensive cleaning, replacing air filters, and other safety measures all related to the pandemic.
