Travelers and R&Q Reinsurance recently settled and agreed to voluntarily dismiss their ongoing dispute in the US District Court for the District of Connecticut. The action arose out of a series of reinsurance contracts between Travelers and R&Q Reinsurance (successor in interest to INA Re). The reinsurance contracts were part of Traveler’s Blanket Excess of Loss program, incepted in 1962, and covered a period between April 1, 1976 through April 1, 1979. The contracts covered asbestos related claims which were indemnified by Travelers. In this action, Travelers filed a Complaint alleging breach of contract, contending that it had properly indemnified an asbestos producer but that INA Re wrongfully had refused to pay in violation of the reinsurance agreements between the parties.
