Mealey's Insurance - Panel Reverses Dismissal Of Trust From Insolvent Insurer's Liquidator's Suit

COLUMBIA, S.C. - The South Carolina Court of Appeals on May 23 reversed a trial judge's dismissal of a dissolved self-insurance trust from a liquidator's declaratory judgment action over an insolvent insurer's coverage obligations for workers' compensation claims because it was not within the judge's discretion to answer the novel question on whether a trust can be sued after it has voluntarily dissolved (Raymond G. Farmer v. CAGC Insurance Co., et al., No. 2016-000192, S.C. App., 2018 S.C. App. LEXIS 36).
