As reported in our previous posts on November 19, 2007 and July 8, 2008, Midwest Employers Casualty Company (“Midwest”) sued Legion Insurance Company (“Legion”), in connection with 43 separate reinsurance certificates issued by Midwest to Legion between 1994 and 2001. The crux of Midwest’s position is that the certificates each establish that the coverage was provided on a “loss occurring basis” rather than a “risk attaching basis,” and also that the agreements contain no agreement to arbitrate. Midwest moved for summary judgment on those bases. However, the federal court agreed with Legion that the nature of the agreements could not be ascertained from the face of the documents submitted, and that the parties’ various oral agreements and understanding as to how the agreements operated potentially conflicted with the certificates, leaving fact questions to be reserved for trial. The court denied the motion and instructed the parties to prepare for trial. Midwest Employers Cas. Co. v. Legion Ins. Co., Case No. 07-870 (USDC W.D. Mo. Mar. 24, 2009).
