Ill. Federal Judge Thwarts Pine Top Receivables’ Efforts to Challenge Summary Judgment Award to Banco

CHICAGO — An Illinois federal judge has thwarted Pine Top Receivables of Illinois’ efforts to challenge an award of summary judgment to Banco de Seguros del Estado in a dispute over $2.26 million in reinsurance proceeds, ruling that it would be unduly prejudicial to Banco to allow PTRIL to amend its complaint at this point in the litigation.
