A reinsurer challenged an arbitration award finding coverage in favor of a P&C insurer in six cases where the insurer had paid sums under compromise agreements. A U.K. court confirmed the award in favor of the P&C insurer, finding that the arbitrators’ reasoning was clear, and that their judgment was unchallengeable in law. The underlying claims by insureds involved silicon breast implant manufacturers’ liability, liability of makers of products derived from blood contaminated with HIV or AIDS, asbestos, and environmental pollution. In re Arbitration Between IRB Brasil Resseguros SA & CX Reinsurance Co.,  EWHC 974 (Q.B. 2010).
