A company that issued Citrus and Allied Essences Ltd. a commercial umbrella insurance policy in 2006 and 2007 has filed suit in a New York state court seeking a declaration that it is not obligated to defend the food-flavoring company in suits by those alleging respiratory injury from diacetyl exposure or to pay damages. Cont’l Cas. Co. v. Citrus & Allied Essences Ltd., No. 650158/2013 (N.Y. Sup. Ct., N.Y. Cnty., filed January 17, 2013). According to the complaint, Citrus and its other insurers have claimed that the primary insurance policies for those years have been exhausted by settlements with plaintiffs in the underlying lawsuits. According to the umbrella insurer, however, because the bodily injury did not take place during the policy period, those other policies have not been exhausted. The insurance plaintiff also seeks to recover the amount it paid under a reservation of rights to cover a “shortfall” to one of the settling plaintiffs in the underlying litigation.
