Court Awards Damages And Prejudgment Interest In Long-Running Retrocession Dispute

Republic Insurance was a fronting company for a syndicate of reinsurers which obtained retrocessional coverage from Group Des Assurance Nationales under LMX quota share contracts over a number of years. As we reported in an August 20, 2013 post, the Court granted summary judgment in Republic’s favor. Thereafter, the parties disputed the damages, offset, and method of prejudgment interest calculation. The Court has now ruled on those issues, awarding Republic the full amount of damages claimed, declining to award Group Des Assurance Nationales an offset against premiums paid, and awarding prejudgment interest dating back to the contract years at issue, which roughly doubled the award. Republic Insurance Co. v. Banco De Seguros Del Estado, No. 10-C-5039 (USDC N.D. Ill. March 20, 2014).
