Jurisdiction: Standing: Insurers

Bell v. Montana State Fund [08/02/11] 2011 MTWCC 23 Although one respondent/insurer argued that the other respondent/insurer did not have standing to oppose its motion for summary judgment because no cross-claims existed between the parties, it is clear that, at least as it pertains to the motion for summary judgment, the parties are adverse to each other and therefore the motion to strike the opposing brief is denied.


American Home Assurance v. Mary Bry [2/27/04] 2004 MTWCC 18 Where insurer has denied liability the Court will not consider the insurer's petition to compel the claimant's cooperation in the further investigation and determine its liability.
