Atlantic Casualty Insurance Co. v. Taylormade Heat & Air, LLC
The court found that the insurer's action was not ripe because no lawsuit had been filed against its insured, and, therefore, the duty to defend was not justiciable. The court also found that no potential lawsuit had reached judgment or settlement, so a determination of the duty to indemnify also was premature.
