A federal district court in Minnesota has rejected a law firm’s former attorney’s contention that the firm’s malpractice insurance carriers owed him a duty to defend claims brought against him for actions he allegedly took after he left the firm because they were related to claims against him that arose while he was at the firm. The court also rejected the attorney’s argument that the insurers had breached fiduciary duties owed to him by settling the claims against him that arose while he was at the firm but refusing to defend him against the remaining claims.
