On Monday morning, the Supreme Court will file its opinions in People v. Nadey and Truck Insurance Exchange v. Kaiser Cement. (Briefs here; oral argument videos here and here.)

Nadey is an automatic direct appeal from an April 2000 judgment of death. The court’s website does not list issues for death penalty appeals. Counsel was appointed in February 2006. Briefing was completed in January 2015.

When the court granted review in Truck Insurance in April 2022, it limited the issue to: “May a primary insurer seek equitable contribution from an excess insurance carrier after the primary policy underlying the excess policy has been exhausted (vertical exhaustion), or is equitable contribution from an excess insurance carrier available only after all primary policies have been exhausted (horizontal exhaustion)?” More about the case here.

These will be the second and third of six opinions for cases argued in April. The opinions in the three other cases are expected by July 1. Additional argued but undecided cases are the nine on the early-May calendar (opinions expected by August 5), the nine on the late-May calendar (opinions expected by August 19, except for the opinion in Castellanos v. State of California, which, because of post-argument briefing, isn’t expected until August 29), and the seven on the June calendar (opinions expected by August 29).

The Nadey and Truck Insurance opinions can be viewed Monday starting at 10:00 a.m.
