Pan American Fire & Casualty Co. v. Revere

United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana
188 F.Supp. 474 (E.D. La. 1960)


Facts

A truck collided with a school bus carrying children. The accident killed the bus driver and three children and injured 23 others. Various parties started to bring multiple actions against the truck’s insurer, Pan American Fire & Casualty Co. (Pan American) (plaintiff). Pan American instituted an interpleader action seeking to combine all of the claimants into one proceeding. Pan American deposited a $100,000 bond, the maximum amount of its policy, with the court. When one of the claimants challenged the propriety of allowing the interpleader action, the court considered whether interpleader was available to Pan American.
