Subrogation-The R.I. Supreme Court rejects application of "anti-subrogation" rule

The Rhode Island Supreme Court rejected the application of the "anti-subrogation" rule where Nationwide, the insurer of a home, brought a subrogation claim against D.F. Pepper Construction, a corporation owned by the homeowner. Pepper, the homeowner, was operating a dump truck owned by his corporation when he crashed into his home causing over $200,000 in damage. Merchants defended the construction company and it argued the claim was barred by the "anti-subrogation" rule which prohibits subrogation claims against the subrogee's insured.
