The Federal Court has set aside two days of hearings in April for the business interruption lawsuit that The Star Entertainment Group launched last year against Chubb and other insurers.

A hearing on April 28 and part hearing on April 29 will take place before Chief Justice James Allsop in Sydney.

The listed casino group and its subsidiary, The Star Brisbane Car Park Holdings, filed their affidavits this month with the court.

They are suing Chubb as the lead insurer of the industrial special risks policy and other insurance partners for breach of contract after their claim for BI losses allegedly suffered during the pandemic shutdown last year was declined.

The insurers say in their concise statements to the court that COVID-19 is excluded in the policy issued to the casino group.

The other respondents in the lawsuit are AIG Australia, XL Insurance, Zurich Australian Insurance, Allianz Australia, Swiss Re International, Assicurazioni Generali, Liberty Mutual, HDI Global, Allied World Assurance and PICC Property and Casualty.
