General Star Nat'l Ins. Co. v. Universal Fabricators, Inc., No. 07-4443
In an action by an insurer seeking a declaration that defendant-excess insurer was required to reimburse plaintiff for part of a settlement of a personal injury action, summary judgment for defendant is reversed where the district court erred in deciding that the underlying state-court judgment established legal liability against the insured and thus precluded recovery under the policy.
