On the Court’s docket today for oral argument is Continental Insurance Co. v. Honeywell International, Inc. As detailed by Law360, the case involves the “appeal of a decision that Honeywell doesn’t have to help cover costs ties to asbestos-related injury suits filed after insurers started excluding asbestos coverage, in a case that could broadly impact how coverage is spread between policyholders and insurers in similar cases.” The Court is also expected to address a choice of law dispute, namely, whether New Jersey or Michigan law applies to insurance policies negotiated and issued in Michigan decades ago.
