Tred R. Eyerly - Insurance Law Hawaii

The court found that the insurer was obligated to indemnify, but not to defend the insured. Old Republic Ins. Co. v. Kenny Constr. Co., 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 189412 (N.D. Ill. Oct. 31, 2017).

Kenny Construction Company was hired by the Army Corp of Engineers to work on the Chicago Deep Tunnel flood control project. Kenny hired Meccon Industries, Inc. as a subcontractor to perform mechanical work and furnish materials for the project. The subcontract required Meccon to provide coverage for the contractor and any other additional insureds as required on the Insurance Requirement Sheet attached to the contract. Neither party was able to produce the Insurance Requirement Sheet.
