Acumen Re Management Corporation brought suit against General Security National Insurance Company, claiming that General improperly entered into commutation agreements with insurers with respect to accounts for which Acumen was receiving, and expected to continue receiving, premium commissions, based on the parties’ agency contracts. General denied that it breached those agreements. The parties cross-moved for summary judgment. Acumen’s motion was denied outright. General’s motion was granted in part and denied in part. It was granted with respect to each of Acumen’s three claims that (1) Acumen was damaged by General’s failure to provide quarterly reports; (2) Acumen was damaged by General’s failure to consult Acumen prior to entering into the commutation agreements; and (3) Acumen was damaged by General’s improper calculation of commutation loss allocation and contingency commission allocation. As to the first issue, Acumen waived its contractual right to receive quarterly reports by failing to require them over a period of several years. As to the second claim, while General failed to consult Acumen on commutation settlements with reinsurers through whose business Acumen was receiving contingent commissions, the contract only required such consultation in situations inapplicable to the dispute. Finally, as to the third claim, the court also agreed that General properly computed the commutation loss allocation and contingency commission allocation. The court, however, denied General’s motion on Acumen’s additional claim that it was damaged by General’s improper use of erroneous data in calculating the contingent commission, finding genuine issues of material fact as to whether General’s calculation relied on erroneous data.
