10th cir

In re: Aramark Leisure Servs. v. Kendrick, No. 07-4120

In a special proceeding under the Limitation of Vessel Owner’s Liability Act arising from a boating accident, and involving coverage for the accident, a judgment finding that plaintiff-vessel owner’s insurer was required to provide primary coverage to the vessel operator is reversed and remanded where: 1) there was federal subject matter jurisdiction over the matter; and 2) the district court erred in holding the insurer liable to the operator, as the insurer had a valid escape clause and the operator has no claim against it that he is required to exhaust under Utah Code Ann. section 31A-28-213(1)(a).
