Aetna Casualty & Surety Co. v. Curley

924 F.2d 406 (1991) | Cited 74 times | First Circuit | February 7, 1991

On May 11, 1990, we certified a series of questions anent this matter to the Rhode Island Supreme Court. See Aetna Cas & Sur. Co. v. Curley, 902 F.2d 1034 (1st Cir. 1990). On January 25, 1991, the Rhode Island Supreme Court responded to those questions. See Aetna Cas. & Sur. Co. v. Curley, No. 90-265-M.P., A.2d (R.I. 1991). The answers to the certified questions are dispositive of the issues raised before us by the appellant, Lynn A. Wilson, in her capacity as administratrix of the estate of Leonard Bruse. Those answers unequivocally confirm the correctness of the declaration of rights entered by the district court.

We need go no further. In the absence of any remaining zoetic issues, we direct that the judgment below be

Affirmed. Costs in favor of appellee Aetna.
