Experience

  • Georgian American Alloys, Inc. v. Axis Insurance Co. (3d Cir. 2022). The Court affirmed District Court’s holding that insurer need not show prejudice when notice was untimely under a claims-made policy. Issue not yet addressed by Delaware Supreme Court.  The Court based its decision on Devon Park Assoc., L.P. v. Federal Insurance Co., a District of Delaware case.  Bob represented the insurers in both cases.
  • In a case of first impression in Delaware, the Superior Court, applying the Full Faith and Credit clause of the U. S. Constitution, denied motion to dismiss client’s registration of Arizona judgment under the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, even though the Canadian judgment upon which the Arizona judgment was based could not have been domesticated under the Uniform Foreign-Country Money Judgment Recognition Act.  The Delaware Supreme Court affirmed.
  • Lead trial counsel in successful Court of Chancery trial against largest class member that refused to pay its share of attorneys’ fees.
  • Won summary judgment for insurer in coverage case, based upon attorney professional liability policy exclusion of any dispute over fees or costs.
  • Won dismissal of defendant in helicopter fatality case based on lack of personal jurisdiction.
  • Obtained dismissal on ground of no personal jurisdiction with respect to declaratory judgment action concerning buy-sell provision of limited liability company agreement.
