Does the Insurance Policy Incorporate the Service Contract by Reference? An Examination of In Re Deepwater Horizon
A Steptoe & Johnson article takes a look at the way additional insured coverage under an insurance policy is analyzed when there is an underlying drilling contract limiting the additional insured coverage to the scope of the liability assumed in the service contract.
The article in The National Law Review discusses In re Deepwater Horizon, a Texas Supreme Court case that governs allocation of risk, assumed liabilities, and the granting of additional insured status in underlying service contracts, and the precedent the case established.
The article also considers some other cases that were litigated after the Deepwater Horizon case.
