Insurer Argues District Court Erred In Dismissing Claims In Oil Spill Damages Suit
Mealey's (October 18, 2016, 12:03 PM EDT) -- BOSTON — An insurer argues in an Oct. 10 reply brief filed in the First Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals that a district court erred in dismissing the insurer’s claims against a ship operator because the suit presents issues of first impression regarding the accountability of the government and its private third-party contractors for oil spill damages (Ironshore Specialty Insurance Co., et al. v. United States of America, et al., No. 16-1589, 1st Cir.).
