Swiss Re, invoking a Indemnity Agreement SuperValu had entered into with the now defunct Amwest Surety, sought to recover attorneys fees and expenses from SuperValu based upon a reinsurance agreement it had entered into, as reinsurer, to guaranty the performance under an appeal bond. Because SuperValu refused to remit payment pursuant to the Indemnity Agreement (which Swiss Re acquired from Amwest by assignment), the District Court found that SuperValu’s refusal constituted a breach and that Swiss Re was entitled to recover damages incurred as a result. However, the District Court concluded that Swiss Re was not entitled to recover attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in defending, settling, and administering payment of the claim relative to the Bond underlying the action because the Indemnity Agreement did not contain any language supporting the recovery of fees and costs. Thus, the parties’ cross-motions for summary judgment were both granted in part and denied in part. Swiss Reinsurance Am. Co. v. SuperValu, Inc., Case No. 09-3083 (USDC D. Minn. Oct. 15, 2010).
