The Duty to Defend: Causation Ambiguity Leads to Admission of Extrinsic Evidence

car wreck front.jpgThe Facts:  Eddie Siegmund was injured in an automobile collision caused by the negligence Mariana Esquivel. Siegmund subsequently filed suit. Star-Tex Resources and Esquivel sought a defense from Granite State Insurance Company under a CGL policy.  Granite State denied a defense based on the policy's auto use exclusion. Star-Tex and Esquivel then filed a declaratory action seeking a defense and indemnity from Granite State. Both sides moved for summary judgment on defense and indemnity.
