WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A judge says insurers don’t have to provide liability coverage to a caterer in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of a University of Delaware student allegedly served alcohol at a party and later hit by a car and killed.

The judge ruled last week that Capozzoli Catering is not entitled to coverage because of a “liquor liability” exclusion for a business that furnishes alcohol and serves alcohol to an underage person.

According to court records, 19-year-old Ethan Connolly of Medway, Massachusetts, was allegedly served alcohol at the 2013 sorority party and was later hit by a car.

Capozzoli argued that the policy exclusion did not apply because it leased the venue from a labor union that holds its liquor license and provides bartenders.
