In a dispute involving insurance liability coverage, district court judgment is affirmed where defendant is not obligated to indemnify plaintiffs under the consent judgment as defendant did not have a duty to defend and provide coverage to the plaintiffs, and therefore it did not breach any duty and was not estopped from asserting the consent clause as a bar to coverage.
