Republic Indemnity Co of America voluntarily dismissed its suit against Transatlantic Reinsurance Company, shortly after the parties sought entry of a tolling agreement. Presumably, the dismissal indicates that the parties have agreed to resolve their dispute by an alternative dispute resolution. Republic alleged that Transatlantic breached obligations under a facultative reinsurance certificate allegedly requiring it to reimburse Republic for certain costs under excess policies issued by Republic to its insured, a distributor of insulation products who had been sued in connection with asbestos-related injuries stemming from the 1980’s. Republic Indemnity Co. of America v. Transatlantic Reinsurance Co., No. 09-Civ-8871 (USDC S.D.N.Y. Jan. 19, 2010).
