Moper Transportation, Inc., et al. v. Norbet Trucking

03-27-08 A-0992-06T2

Under New Jersey choice-of-law principles, New Jersey law
controls the dispute between two insurance carriers as to
coverage when the policies covering a New Jersey vehicle and its
tractor are issued to New Jersey corporations in New Jersey,
even though the accident occurred in New York and the drivers
lived there. The settlement of the underlying personal injury
action in New York distinguishes this case from others pointing
to New York's governmental interest, and New Jersey law controls
as to the allocation of loss between carriers.
