The Tennessee Insurance Commissioner, as liquidator for three risk retention groups, sued General Reinsurance Corp, Milliman, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Wachovia Bank and others in Tennessee state court, alleging a broad based conspiracy and fraud in a reinsurance program involving Reciprocal of America. After the case was removed to federal district court, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation granted a motion to transfer the case to the Reciprocal of America Sales Practices Litigation MDL proceeding pending in the Western District of Tennessee. The Panel found that the actions involve questions of fact arising out of relationships and transactions substantially similar to those involved in the MDL action, and that transfer and consolidation therefore was appropriate under 28 U.S.C. section 1407. In re: Reciprocal of America Sales Practices Litigation, MDL No. 1551 (JPML June 5, 2008).
