Parties in Mich. Reinsurance Action Battle Over Production of Commutation Info
June 21, 2021
- Motion to Compel
DETROIT — A cedent is urging a Michigan federal judge to compel Transatlantic Reinsurance Co. to produce certain evidence relating to a proposed commutation that the cedent says would support its request for attorneys’ fees.
TransRe, however, told Judge Stephen J. Murphy III of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan that the documents are irrelevant, confidential, and that the cedent, Amerisure Mutual Insurance Co., is not entitled to extra-contractual damages.
Amerisure’s predecessor, Michigan Mutual Insurance Co., issued primary and umbrella liability insurance policies to Armstrong Machine Works and Armstrong Video Products between 1976 and 1990.
