FEDERAL CIRCUIT HOLDS THAT PRIME CONTRACTOR’S INSURER CANNOT SEEK EQUITABLE SUBROGATION AGAINST GOVERNMENT. PDF Print

(February 1, 2016) - Although a performing surety can bring an action directly against the government under the doctrine of equitable subrogation, the Federal Circuit has not previously determined whether the doctrine extended to a contractor’s general liability insurer. If, due to the government’s breach of a contract, a contractor’s insurer is forced to defend the contractor and pay claims, should that insurer be entitled to recoup those costs by asserting a direct action in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims against the government? Unfortunately for commercial general liability carriers for construction contractors, this November, in Federal & Guaranty Insurance Underwriters, Inc. v. United States, 805 F.3d 1082 (Fed. Cir. 2015), the Federal Circuit answered that question in the negative and unequivocally refused to extend equitable subrogation beyond Miller Act sureties.
