Nat'l Football League v. Fireman's Fund Ins. Co., 157 Cal.Rptr.3d 318 (2013)

Insured sought indemnity and defense declaration with respect to insurance coverage for underlying concussion-related bodily injury claims. The Superior Court stayed the California declaratory judgment action in favor of pending New York litigation on the grounds that New York was the center of the parties’ dispute and California was an inconvenient forum.  The Court of Appeals affirmed, holding that the trial court acted well within its discretion in staying the case.
