Federal Insurance Co. v. Northfield Insurance Co.
The court found the motion to dismiss the duty to defend claims lacked merit because the insured might seek a defense from the insurers although it already had a complete defense from another insurer, but the duty to indemnify could not be adjudicated because a judgment had not yet been entered in the liability lawsuit.
