Michael Scott Batson

Case Conclusion Date:October 26, 2006

Practice Area:Insurance

Outcome:Overturned Summary Judgment

Description:OneBeacon sought to reform a motor vehicle liability policy that allegedly required it to contribute $1 Million to a settlement entered into by Travelers. After the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts denied OneBeacon's request and granted summary judgment for Travelers, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit reversed the District Court's summary judgment for Travelers and directed the District Court to enter summary judgment in favor of OneBeacon providing for reformation of the policy consistent with the Court of Appeals' ruling.
