RLI Ins. Co. v. CNA Cas. of California, B184637

A judgment against an excess insurer on an equitable subrogation claim is affirmed where the excess insurer could not maintain a subrogation action against a primary insurer, based on an unreasonable refusal to settle an underlying tort claim, because the tort claim did not go to trial, and no excess judgment was entered against the insured.
