James River Ins. Co. v. Kemper Cas. Ins. Co., No. 08-3570

In plaintiff-James River Insurance's case seeking a declaration that it had no duty to defend or indemnify two lawyers who were sued for malpractice, district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of defendant-Kemper Insurance is reversed with instructions to enter the declaratory judgment requested by the plaintiff as James River's policy does not apply since it excludes coverage of conduct covered by a prior insurer, and all the wrongful acts alleged in the malpractice suit arose from events that took place in Kemper's policy period.
