MG+M Obtains Dismissal on Behalf of Several Insurance Companies
December 17, 2018


On an issue of first impression in Rhode Island, Brian Gross and Ed Mazzaferro obtained a dismissal on behalf of several insurance companies that faced a direct claim by a plaintiff who claimed that the insurance companies’ former insured manufactured asbestos-containing products which caused the death of plaintiff’s decedent. Plaintiff originally sued the insurance companies’ former insured, but because the former insured corporation had been legally dissolved seven years prior to plaintiff’s claims, the Rhode Island Superior Court granted the former insured summary judgment. In response, plaintiff attempted to bring a direct claim against the insurers for the alleged negligence of its former insured.
