American Int'l. Specialty Lines Ins. Co. v. Rentech Steel LLC, 08-11052

In an action by an insurer seeking a declaration that plaintiff had no duty to either defend defendant in an underlying state-court personal injury lawsuit or to indemnify defendant for the judgment, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed where the Texas Workers' Compensation Act imposed no obligation on a nonsubscriber to compensate an employee for injuries sustained due to the employer's own negligence, and thus the exclusion was not applicable.
