General Star Nat. Ins. Co. v. Universal Fabricators, Inc., No. 07-4443

In an action claiming that defendant insurer was bound by the terms of an excess insurance policy it had issued to contribute to the satisfaction of a state-court judgment of liability in a personal injury action against two entities for whom the insured had been a contractor, summary judgment for plaintiffs is reversed where the district court erred in deciding that the state-court judgment established legal liability against the insured.
