Waste Mgm’t Inc. v. Great Divide Ins. Co.

Waste Management’s insurer has no duty to defend the company in underlying litigation brought by a commercial garbage truck driver who suffered an accident at a WM landfill. The injured driver was employed by another company and didn’t, and likely couldn’t, seek to hold WM vicariously liable for negligence by his own employer in the underlying litigation.

Motion for summary judgment granted.

Waste Mgm’t Inc. v. Great Divide Ins. Co., No. 3:17cv60, Mar. 12, 2019. EDVA at Richmond (Lauck).
