In an action for equitable contribution, trial court judgment is reversed in part and affirmed in part where: 1) the right of equitable contribution between insurers is not controlled by the contract between the insured and the insurer but by equitable principles; 2) substantial evidence does not support the trial court's determination that plaintiff's right of equitable contribution from co-insurer ICW arose on May 24, 2002; and 3) substantial evidence does not support the trial court's findings with respect to the dates on which plaintiff's right to equitable contribution from defendant arose.
