National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh has filed suit in state court in Manhattan against the United Football League ("UFL") and its teams, alleging that the League and its teams have failed to pay approximately $3.1 million in additional premiums, loss reimbursements, adjustments and other costs. National Union provided workers' compensation coverage in 2009 and 2010.
The Complaint seeks to compel the UFL to submit to arbitration in accordance with the provisions of the payment agreements, but also contains a count for breach of contract. Normally, these workers' compensation additional payment disputes are resolved. Given the UFL's recent reported contraction and financial issues, however, it may not have the capability to pay National Union.
