In this contract construction case, the parties disagreed over whether a “claims start up fee” paid pursuant to an administrative services agreement should be included in calculating the losses incurred under a reinsurance contract. Both parties filed motions for partial summary judgment on the issue. The trial court granted American Southwest’s motion, and Employers appealed. In reversing the trial court and granting Employers’ motion for partial summary judgment, the appellate court held that the fee should be included in calculating Employers’ losses incurred. The decision turned on the characterization of the fee. The court ruled that the fee was a compensable loss adjustment expense. Employers Reinsurance Corp. v. Am. Sw. Ins. Managers, Inc., No. 05-06-01284 (Tex. App. Aug. 14, 2008).
