February 17, 2006
February 17, 2006, Greencastle, Ind. - "It's the biggest insurance case to be re-argued at the Texas Supreme Court, and it's going to impact your practice," notes Texas Lawyer of "Excess Underwriters at Lloyd's, London, et al. v. Frank's Casing Crew & Rental Tools Inc." Karen (Klaas) Milhollin, senior of counsel at Westmoreland Hall in Houston and 1982 graduate of DePauw University, is one of two attorneys who took part in an online discussion of the case yesterday, a day after they made oral arguments before the state's high court.
"Probably the most surprising moment was the questioning by the court which seemed to indicate that there continues to be a difference of opinion as to whether the right to reimbursement is implied-in-law or implied-in-fact," Milhollin tells the publication. "Each justice seems to have a slightly different opinion."
