"10. The Plaintiffs have submitted the Lawsuits to Ace for defense and coverage under the Commercial General Liability Policy. A copy of the Policy is attached as Exhibit 5.

11. Ace has declined and refused to provide either a defense or coverage for any of the Lawsuits. Consequently, the Plaintiffs have retained counsel both in Florida and in Maryland to defend the Lawsuits and have incurred and are incurring legal expenses and litigation costs as a result of Ace's refusal to defend the Lawsuits."


"22. Because Ace has refused to defend the Lawsuits, the Plaintiffs have incurred and continue to incur legal fees and litigation expenses in defending both the Lawsuits in Florida and
in Maryland.

23. Ace has breached its duty to defend the Lawsuits, thereby causing the Plaintiffs to incur the legal fees and litigation expenses mentioned above.

WHEREFORE, this suit is brought and the Plaintiffs claim damages in an amount to be proven at trial to reimburse for the legal fees and litigation expenses incurred in defending the
Lawsuits and in prosecuting the action for declaratory judgment."
