In a written ruling, the judge said the Sony distribution warehouse had been destroyed and looted during "the widespread civil disorder and rioting which took place in London and elsewhere", adding:
Insurers have won a High Court fight with police after a warehouse in north London was destroyed and looted during the London riots two years ago.
A judge ruled that insurers were claiming for losses that arose out of damage caused by "persons riotously and tumultuous assembled". Legislation governing police says compensation for "damage by riot" should be paid out of police funds.
