LITIGATION ALERT: The Motor Carrier Act/MCS-90 Endorsement Duty to Defend When No Coverage Exists?
Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Under the Motor Carrier Act of 1980 ("the Act"), no motor carrier shall operate a motor vehicle unless the carrier has obtained minimum levels of financial responsibility through insurance or other forms for bodily injury or death to any person due to the negligent operation, maintenance, or use of a motor vehicle in interstate travel.  The regulations and endorsements were created in an attempt to stem what certain people considered to be ongoing abuse in the trucking industry.  As the 9th Circuit Appellate Court explained, the Act's purpose was to protect members of the public against uninsured trucks.  That purpose is an important one, as Court opinions are often far-reaching in their attempts to protect the public at large, but conversely, may take a more narrow view of the policy and endorsements in litigation when limited to insurers and motor carriers.  One of these areas that will be discussed below is whether an insurer must provide a defense to litigation for the motor carrier when they are withholding insurance coverage.
