CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – After a number of area businesses were turned down after making claims on their business-interruption insurance policies, the Canton law firm Tzangas Plakos Mannos says they have filed several lawsuits on their behalf in Stark and Summit County Common Pleas Court.

The insurance companies reportedly told the 20 companies including Gervasi Vineyard that “viruses” were an exclusion in their policies.

All had to cease operations at least in part because of the pandemic.
