A New York State Supreme Court Judge has ruled against WQIS in a dispute involving the marine pollution insurance arena.

According to Safe Harbor, this is the second ruling against WQIS in its attempt to prevent start-up Safe Harbor Pollution Insurance from entering the insurance space where WQIS has been the dominant market for the past 40 years.

In a prepared statement, Safe Harbor President Michael Falvey stated, "We are pleased with the decision, and that the Court saw WQIS's 'evidence' for what it was—insufficient." Russell Brown, Principal of Safe Harbor, also in a prepared stattement, added that he was pleased with the Court's ruling and is looking forward to building the finest marine pollution insurance company without the threat of continual legal issues.
