LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION

United National Insurance Co.

Hillside Productions, which operates Freedom Hill Amphitheater, filed a series of civil suits that accused Sterling Heights' city officials of harassment and conspiring to close the facility because of residents' complaints over noise and traffic. The city sold bonds to pay Hillside while it negotiated with three insurers over who would pay the bill. The city received a total of $18.75 million from Specialty National Insurance and the Indemnity Co. earlier this year, and was looking to recoup the rest from United National. The city will be responsible for the remainder of the money. Sterling Heights filed a suit against the insurance company after it lost a $31 million lawsuit filed against the city two years ago by Hillside. US District Court Judge Nancy Edmunds ordered United National Insurance to pay $10.33 million. (Jan-24-07) [DETROIT FREE PRESS: INSURANCE CLAIM]
