NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE
APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION
SUPERIOR COURT OF NEW JERSEY
Before Judges Lihotz, Waugh, and St. John.
On appeal from the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Burlington County, Docket No. L-2108-07.
James P. Lisovicz argued the cause for appellant .
Elliott Abrutyn argued the cause for respondent .
The opinion of the court was delivered by
Defendant Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association Insurance Company appeals from the Law Division’s amended judgment in favor of plaintiff OneBeacon Insurance Company .1 The judgment included $84,618.76 to reimburse OneBeacon for Pennsylvania’s share of defense costs incurred by OneBeacon in defending Aristone, Inc. , in an underlying negligence action in which Aristone was a defendant. It also included an award of $74,308.97 in counsel fees to OneBeacon as the successful litigant in this action, pursuant to principles contained in Rule 4:42-9. We affirm the judgment for the costs of defense in the underlying action, but reverse as to the counsel fees in this action.
We discern the following facts and procedural history from the record on appeal.
After Evesham filed suit, Selective Way assumed Aristone’s defense and appointed an attorney to defend Aristone. OneBeacon subsequently joined with Selective Way in providing Aristone’s defense, and appointed the same attorney to defend Aristone on its behalf.
