U.S. District Court for the Northern District Announces Excess Insurer Cannot Recover Full Amount of Defense Expenses from Primary Insurer

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois held that an excess insurer was not entitled to recover the full amount of defense costs it paid to defend an insured from the primary insured. It must split the defense costs equally. In 2007, three construction workers were injured and one was killed when they fell from scaffolding while working on the exterior of a building. A lawsuit was filed against the site manager, Messer Construction Co., and Hi-Lo Climbers L.L.C. All of the workers were employees of either Gibson-Lewis L.L.C. or Gibson-Lewis of Indianapolis L.L.C. Gibson-Lewis had hired Messer to perform plasterwork and leased the scaffolding equipment from Hi-Lo. Both Messer and Hi-Lo were insured under a policy issued by Travelers Property Casualty Co. of America and under a secondary umbrella insurance policy issued by Illinois National Insurance Co. The Illinois National policy provided coverage only in excess of that provided under the Travelers' policy. At the time of the accident, Burlington Insurance Co. was Hi-Lo's general liability carrier.
