Co., 2003 WL 21478776 (Tex. 2003), the Texas Supreme Court interpreted the scope of a professional liability exclusion in a CGL policy.
Co., 2003 WL 21498685 (N.Y. 2003), the New York Court of Appeals held that the absolute pollution exclusion does not unambiguously apply to preclude coverage for bodily injuries caused by the inhalation of ordinary paint or solvent fumes in an office where the insured was performing painting and stripping work.
Co., 1 Cal.Rptr.3d 516 (2003), the pollution exclusion at issue was qualified, as it excluded coverage for any pollution unless the damage was caused by a sudden, unexpected, or unintended discharge during the policy period which also caused property damage or bodily injury during the policy period.

 Approaching Mars   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Between now and August, Mars will brighten until it "blazes forth against the dark background of space with a splendor that outshines Sirius and rivals the giant Jupiter himself." Astronomer Percival Lowell, who famously mapped the canals of Mars, wrote those words to describe the planet during a similar close encounter in the 19th century.
On August 27th it will be twice as wide (25 arcseconds) and six times brighter (magnitude -2.9).
August 27th is indeed the best perihelic opposition since the days of the Neanderthals, but it scarcely differs from other more recent ones.
