RLI Ins. Co. v. Roberts, 2020 WL 3621269 (5th Cir. 2020). The firm represented a surety that issued decommissioning bonds on several oil and gas properties in the Gulf of Mexico. The firm brought a lawsuit against an individual indemnitor for payment of outstanding premium, indemnity for the surety’s losses and expenses, and specific performance of the indemnitor’s collateral security obligations. The appellate court affirmed district court’s judgment on all counts, resulting in an award of over $250,000 in indemnity losses and unpaid premium and ordering the indemnitor to deposit an additional $1.25 million in collateral security. The district court’s order may be found at RLI Ins. Co. v. Roberts, 2019 WL 1979931 (S.D. Tex. 2019)
