1 p.m. 49A04-1208-PL-400. Thomson, Inc. n/k/a Technicolor USA Inc. (“Thompson”), sued several insurance companies, including Northern Assurance Co. of America as successor in interest to Employers Surplus Lines Insurance Co. (“ESLIC”), seeking insurance coverage for environmental damages at three sites owned by Thomson.  Both parties later filed motions for summary judgment.  The trial court denied ESLIC’s motion for summary judgment and granted Thomson’s motion for summary judgment, concluding that Thomson was entitled to coverage under the policies ESLIC had issued.  ESLIC appeals and argues that the trial court should have applied California law when interpreting the ESLIC policies and that, if California law is applied, Thomson has no coverage under the ESLIC policies for cleanup costs at the contaminated sites because Thomson’s cleanup costs do not constitute damages resulting from a suit brought against Thomson.

  1. I just wanted to point out that Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Senator Feinstein, former Senate majority leader Bill Frist, and former attorney general John Ashcroft are responsible for this rubbish. We need to keep a eye on these corrupt, arrogant, and incompetent fools.

  2. Well I guess our politicians have decided to give these idiot federal prosecutors unlimited power. Now if I guy bounces a fifty-dollar check, the U.S. attorney can intentionally wait for twenty-five years or so and have the check swabbed for DNA and file charges. These power hungry federal prosecutors now have unlimited power to mess with people. we can thank Wisconsin's Jim Sensenbrenner and Diane Feinstein, John Achcroft and Bill Frist for this one. Way to go, idiots.

  3. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  4. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  5. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.
