Pogo Resources, LLC v. St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co.
A court of the Northern District of Texas denied commercial general and excess liability insurer's motion to dismiss bankruptcy assignee's claims against liability insurers arising out of pre-assignment oil well spill cleanup costs, finding assignment by named insured to assignee was authorized by Bankruptcy Code despite anti-assignment clause in policies, thus claims otherwise personal to named insured were plausible claims asserted by assignee which it had standing to pursue.
