Subrogation, Insurance Code Section 11580, and the Craziness We Call Insurance Law

If you want to geek out on insurance law the next case is for you. The Insurance Company of the State of Pennsylvania v. American Safety Indemnity Company, 2nd District Court of Appeals, Case No. B283684 (March 1, 2019), is an interesting case involving Insurance Code Section 11580, which in essence provides that if a judgment is entered against an insured (and there is coverage for that insured) the insured may sue the insurance company to pay for the judgment.

However, in this case, the party doing the suing was the insurer of a general contractor that had a judgment entered against it, and the party being sued was the insurer of subcontractor, on subrogation basis.
