SCOTTSDALE INS. CO. v. NAT'L UNION FIRE INS. CO. OF PITTSBURGH, E028602
Plaintiff's "other insurance" clause, which directs how liability is to be allocated among multiple insurers who are liable on the same risk, is enforceable and plaintiff need not contribute to defendant's coverage of insured, but if and when every other insurer-s duty to defend has terminated, plaintiff-s duty to defend will debut, and thus, the insured will always be fully protected.
