The Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Holds Federal Insurance Co. to Provide Indemnification Coverage
Feb 10 14
The Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held an insurer was obligated to provide indemnification coverage under an insured's policy for the insured's settlement of an underlying antitrust suit. Federal Insurance Co. issued an insurance policy to William Beaumont Hospital. During the policy term, two registered nurses, neither of whom Beaumont employed, brought a class action against of eight Detroit-area hospital systems, including Beaumont. The nurses claimed the hospitals violated Â§1 of the Sherman Act by conspiring to depress the wages of the nurses and exchanging information regarding the compensation of the nurses, which had the effect of depressing their wages. The district court granted summary judgment in favor of the hospitals on the nurses' claim of a per se violation of Â§1 of the Sherman Act arising from the defendants' alleged conspiracy to depress nurse compensation levels. However, the court permitted the nurses to move forward on their Â§1 "rule of reason" claim that the defendants unlawfully agreed among themselves to share compensation information in a manner that harmed competition and depressed the nurses' wages. Beaumont timely requested coverage under the policy for the nurses' action. Federal, recognizing the action as an antitrust claim, as defined by the policy, consented to pay 80% of the covered antitrust loss. During settlement discussions with the nurses, Beaumont sued Federal, seeking a declaration that Federal was obligated to indemnify Beaumont. While the coverage action was pending, Beaumont settled with the nurses for approximately $11.3 million. Federal paid Beaumont 80% of the settlement, or approximately $9 million. The district court granted Beaumont's motion for judgment on the pleadings. Federal appealed, arguing it owed no duty to indemnify Beaumont under the terms of its policy. Insurer must provide coverage under explicit terms of policy. The Sixth Circuit affirmed the district court's judgment. Federal's principal argument was that the nurses' claims arose from Beaumont's gaining of profit, remuneration or advantage to which it was not entitled and the settlement was a disgorgement of that advantage. Federal argued the advantage gained was nursing services at below-market compensation and that settlement was clearly disgorgement of the value of that advantage. Consequently, under the policy, which expressly declined coverage of amounts constituting disgorgement, there was no coverage for what Beaumont's nurses received from the underlying suit. Based on the nurses' complaint, terms of the policy and principles of antitrust law, the Sixth Circuit found the settlement did not constitute disgorgement under the policy and was therefore covered. The Sixth Circuit also found Michigan public policy did not bar coverage of the settlement.
