Marion Superior Court Judge Michael Keele, who presides over environ- mental cases, had tossed the suit out, finding the city lacked legal grounds to bring it. Keele cited the state's "direct action" common law rule, which bars an alleg- edly injured party from seeking damages directly against the insurers of the party causing the injury -- before a judgment is obtained. But the appeals court determined the complaint should be allowed to proceed because the city is not yet seeking any direct payment from the insurance companies, thus there is no "direct action." It is only seeking a declaration that the insurance companies would be obligated to provide coverage under the policies it issued to Studebaker -- if the city can prove Studebaker caused the contamination in its underlying case. "We still have to carry forward a burden of proof, but at the same time it does- n't shut us out completely, which was what the original order was," said assis- tant city attorney Cheryl Greene. Handling the case for the city is the Indianapolis law firm of Plews, Shadley, Racher and Braun. The firm is waging another legal battle -- with even more money at stake -- on the city's behalf in a U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Chicago, where it has entered a claim in the bankruptcy case of Allied Products Corp. Allied occupied some former Oliver Plow Works properties, plus a nearby stamping plant on South Franklin Street. By comparison, the two properties combined are nearly twice as large as the now-demolished former Uniroyal plant in Mishawaka. In the Allied case, the city says cleanup could cost from $6.7 million to $19.6 million. Allied in July 2002 filed with the court an agreement allowing it to sell back its liability insurance policies to its insurance companies. In return for a total release of liability, the companies would pay $3.5 million to be distributed for the general benefit of Allied's bankruptcy estate.
