Insurance Coverage TRIAL

Our client settled a dispute with its asbestos defense insurer. But the insurer was still suing two other insurers for both reimbursement of past defense costs and ongoing contribution in the future. We were concerned that the insurers would seek to use evidence (documents and testimony) as to which our client, the insured, actually held the attorney-client and/or attorney work-product privilege. Even though our client has already settled I obtained the Judge’s permission to appear and object on behalf of our client. Every objection which I made, in the course of the trial, was sustained.
