The school district claims in the suit that its insurance com- pany, Insurance Company of North America, has claimed it is not liable because of the sports exclusion clause. That clause, the- school dis- trict alleges, is a violation of the contract which called for an umbrella policy with coverage in the amount of million without any exclusions. The suit asks that the insur- ance company be prevented from relying on that clause, and asks that thc contract be re- formed by eliminating the ex- clusion effective Jan. 1, 1973, in order to comply with the intend- led meaning of the contract.
