Amerisure Ins. Co. v. Navigators Ins. Co., 09-20060

In an action by a primary insurer seeking reimbursement from an excess insurer through equitable and contractual subrogation, summary judgment for defendant is vacated where: 1) contractual subrogation placed plaintiff in the shoes of its insureds involved in the accident at issue; 2) the employer-indemnification exception barred coverage for one of the insureds; and 3) the district court needed to determine whether an individual insured was an independent contractor or an employee.
