1:30 p.m. 49A04-1203-CT-97. In this litigation, Appellee/Cross-Appellant Warsaw Chemical Company seeks indemnity from its insurer Appellant/Cross-Appellee United States Fidelity and Guaranty Company (“USF&G”) for an environmental cleanup. USF&G appeals from the trial court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Warsaw Chemical, who also cross-appeals, challenging certain rulings in favor of USF&G and arguing an alternate ground on which it was entitled to summary judgment. USF&G contends that the trial court erred in ruling that a (1) 1992 release executed by Warsaw Chemical did not cover certain insurance policies, (2) Warsaw Chemical’s claim was not time-barred, (3) coverage existed under the personal injury provisions of its policy with Warsaw Chemical, and (4) all of Warsaw Chemical’s costs were covered even if coverage did exist. Warsaw Chemical responds to all of these arguments and additionally claims that (1) the Court of Appeals should affirm for the alternate reason that coverage exists under property damage provisions of the relevant policies and (2) it is entitled to prejudgment interest.

  1. I need an experienced attorney to handle a breach of contract matter. Kindly respond for more details. Graham Young

  2. I thought the slurs were the least grave aspects of her misconduct, since they had nothing to do with her being on the bench. Why then do I suspect they were the focus? I find this a troubling trend. At least she was allowed to keep her law license.

  3. Section 6 of Article I of the Indiana Constitution is pretty clear and unequivocal: "Section 6. No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious or theological institution."

  4. Video pen? Nice work, "JW"! Let this be a lesson and a caution to all disgruntled ex-spouses (or soon-to-be ex-spouses) . . . you may think that altercation is going to get you some satisfaction . . . it will not.

  5. First comment on this thread is a fitting final comment on this thread, as that the MCBA never answered Duncan's fine question, and now even Eric Holder agrees that the MCBA was in material error as to the facts: "I don't get it" from Duncan December 1, 2014 5:10 PM "The Grand Jury met for 25 days and heard 70 hours of testimony according to this article and they made a decision that no crime occurred. On what basis does the MCBA conclude that their decision was "unjust"? What special knowledge or evidence does the MCBA have that the Grand Jury hearing this matter was unaware of? The system that we as lawyers are sworn to uphold made a decision that there was insufficient proof that officer committed a crime. How can any of us say we know better what was right than the jury that actually heard all of the the evidence in this case."
