CIVIL ACTION NO.
v.
COMPLAINT
INSURANCE COMPANY OF NORTH AMERICA, Defendant.
Plaintiff, Appalachian Insurance Company ("Appalachian"), and for its Complaint against Defendant, Insurance Company of North America ("INA"), alleges as follows:
PARTIES
1.
Appalachian is incorporated under the laws of the State of Rhode Island with its
principal place ofbusiness located at 1301 Atwood Ave., Johnston, Rhode Island 02919. 2. INA is incorporated under the laws of the State of Pennsylvania; with its principal
place of business located at 436 Walnut St., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19106.
JURISDICTION AND VENUE
3. This Court has subject matter jurisdiction pursuant to 28 V.S.c. § 1332(a)(1)
because the amount in controversy exceeds $75,000 exclusive of interest and costs and because there is complete diversity of citizenship in that Appalachian is a Rhode Island,corporation with its principal place of business in Rhode Island and INA is a Pennsylvania corporation with its principal place of business in Pennsylvania.
Case 2:10-cv-07614-RB Document 1
Filed 12/30/10 Page 5 of 16
4.
This Court has personal jurisdiction over INA because it is a Pel1l1lsylvania
corporation with its principal place of business in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 5. Venue is proper in this Court because INA's principal place of business is located
in this district and a substantial part of the events giving rise to this action occurred in this district. 28 U.S.C. § 1391(a).
NATURE OF THE ACTION
6.
This action arises out of and seeks damages and other relief in c9nnection with
INA's breach of a reinsurance contract. 7. In a reinsurance contract, a reinsurer agrees to indemnify the reinsured against all
or part of the loss that the reinsured may sustain under an insurance policy or policies that the reinsured company has issued, in exchange for a portion of the premium paid to the reinsured for the insurance policies. 8. A "facultative" reinsurance contract reinsures a specific insurance policy or risk,
as opposed to "treaty" reinsurance, which reinsures mUltiple insurance policies or an entire book of business written by the reinsured.
THE CERTIFICATE OF FACULTATIVE REINSURANCE
9.
For the period April 1, 1972 to April 1, 1975, Appalachian enter~d into a
("Fa~ultative
facultative reinsurance contract with INA, Certificate Number FRC 00585
Certificate"), pursuant to which INA agreed to reinsure an excess umbrella liability policy, Number 71074, that Appalachian issued to Union Carbide Corporation ("Uniof\ Carbide Policy"). A true and correct copy of the Facultative Certificate is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 1O. Under the Facultative Certificate, INA agreed to reimburse Appalachian for
certain amounts that Appalachian incurred in connection with the Union Carbidle Policy.
2
Case 2:10-cv-07614-RB Document 1
Filed 12/30/10 Page 6 of 16
11.
The Facultative Certificate provided that INA's liability "shall follow that of
[Appalachian] and ... shall be subject in all respects to all the tenus and conditions of [Appalachian's] policy...." Id., p. 2 at ~ A. 12. The Facultative Certificate also contains "follow the settlements" language which
provides that "[a]ll claims involving this reinsurance, when settled by [Appalachian], shall be binding on [INA]." Id., p. 2 at ~ C.
THE UNDERLYING ASBESTOS CLAIMS AND
APPALACHIAN'S LOSS PAYMENTS
13. After the Facultative Certificate was executed, Union Carbide was named as a
defendant in many asbestos products personal injury claims and lawsuits. Union Carbide tendered these claims and lawsuits to its insurers, including Appalachian, for defense and indemnity. 14. Appalachian was named as a party in a lawsuit captioned Union Carbide Corp. v.
Affiliated FM Insurance Co., et al., Index No. 600804-04, Supreme Court ofthe State of New
York, County of New York. In that lawsuit, Union Carbide alleged that its insurers, including Appalachian, were obligated to defend and indemnify it in connection with the underlying asbestos claims and lawsuits. 15. On or around September 10,2008, Appalachian and Union Carbide entered into a
confidential settlement agreement resolving Union Carbide's claims asserted in the abovereferenced insurance coverage lawsuit. Pursuant to this settlement agreement, Appalachian agreed to make certain payments to Union Carbide, including payments under the Union Carbide Policy. Appalachian's decision to settle Union Carbide's insurance coverage claims was undertaken after a good faith, reasonable, and business-like assessment of Appalachian's duties under the Union Carbide Policy and possible coverage defenses.

Filed 12/30/10 Page 7 of 16
APPALACHIAN'S REINSURANCE BILLING TO INA
16.
Subsequent to earlier reporting, Appalachian issued a billing, including certain
proofs ofloss, to INA pursuant to the Facultative Certificate on or around July 29, 2010. These proofs of loss exceed $2 million. 17. The Facultative Certificate provides that "[p ]ayment of its proportion of loss and
expense paid by the [Appalachian] will be made by [INA] promptly following receipt of proof of loss." Exhibit A, p. 2 at ~ D. 18. INA has not paid Appalachian's billings.
COUNT ONE Breach of Contract
19.
Appalachian repeats and incorporates herein by reference the allegations
contained in the foregoing paragraphs 1-18 as if fully set forth herein. 20. Appalachian has fully performed its obligations under the Facultative Certificate
and has properly billed INA for amounts due thereunder. 21. In breach of the Facultative Certificate and in violation of its duty of utmost good
faith to Appalachian, INA has refused to pay Appalachian's billings. 22. INA's failure to pay Appalachian's billings have damaged Appalachian.
WHEREFORE, Appalachian demands that judgment be entered in its favor and against INA as follows: (a) Awarding Appalachian money damages plus interest with respect to outstanding billings;
(b)
For attorneys' fees, interest and costs of suit; and Such other relief the Court deems appropriate.
(c)

COUNT TWO Declaratory Relief 23. Appalachian repeats and incorporates herein by reference the allegations
contained in the foregoing paragraphs 1-18 as if fully set forth herein. 24. Under the settlement agreement, Appalachian will make additional future
payments to Union Carbide under the Union Carbide Policy. Appalachian anticipates billing appropriate portions of these future payments to INA under the Facultative Ce1]1:ificate. 25.
An actual controversy exists with respect to the parties' rights under the
Facultative Certificate, including but not limited to, the obligations of INA to pay past, current and future billings in a timely manner. 26. Certificate. Appalachian is entitled to a declaration of its rights under the Facultative
