Biltmore Assocs., LLC v. Twin City Fire Ins. Co., No. 06-16417

In a bankruptcy adversary proceeding by former officers of the Debtor for indemnification in an underlying action for breach of fiduciary duty, the dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where the "insured versus insured" exclusion in the relevant policies barred coverage, because a post-bankruptcy debtor in possession acts in the same capacity as the pre-bankruptcy debtor for the purpose of directors and officers liability insurance.
