The United States Supreme Court declined to review a Second Circuit decision wherein a bankruptcy trust fund established to reimburse asbestos victims while barring them from future lawsuits against insurers was held to not apply to Chubb Indemnity Insurance Co. In the underlying matter, Chubb sought contribution for asbestos injury claims from The Travelers Indemnity Co. The trust was established in 1986 by a bankruptcy court and funded with hundreds of millions of dollars from insurers for the benefit of asbestos claimants and their families. In 2009, the Supreme Court reversed an earlier Second Circuit decision, finding that the trust applied to contribution suits from other insurers and that the bankruptcy court which set up the trust had proper jurisdiction. The matter was remanded to the Second Circuit on the narrow question of whether Chubb was given enough notice to comply with the trust agreement. The Second Circuit stuck to its original ruling and decided both that the trust was outside the purview of the bankruptcy court's jurisdiction and that Chubb was not given fair notice of the trust agreement. Although Traveler's argued that the Second Circuit's ruling was an act of unprecedented defiance and would reduce the incentive for insurers to contribute to such trusts, the Supreme Court denied both the cert petition regarding adequacy of notice and the petition for writ of mandamus regarding whether the Second Circuit's decision was contrary to the terms of the Supreme Court's remand.
