On June 15, 2007, we reported on a ruling by a United States Magistrate Judge compelling the production of a reinsurance agreement and communications with reinsurers in a coverage action. The district court has entered a fairly detailed Order denying motions seeking to vacate the Magistrate Judge's decision. The Court rejected a strict rule against the production of such information, holding that discoverability and relevance should be evaluated based upon the facts of each case. United States Fire Insurance Co. v. Bunge North America, Inc., Case No., 05-2192 (USDC D. Kansas July 23, 2007).
