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. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
