Failures

What companies are we talking about when we say companies on the edge?

So that we'll all be on the same plane, I've grouped some of the more well-known companies as follows:

  • APPROACHING THE EDGE: Fidelity Mutual?, Mutual of New York?, and Travelers?
  • AT THE EDGE: First Capital, Monarch Life, and Mutual Benefit.
  • OVER THE EDGE: Executive Life

Mr. RUBINSTEIN. I refer the chairman to the case of Gordon v.  United States Department of the Treasury, which is reported at 846 Federal Reporter 2nd, page 272, in which the priority issue was 31 U.S.C. section 3718. The Gordon case is more fully reported at the District Court level at 668 Federal Supplement 483, where the court goes into some detail of the statute, but cites other case law in the area, including what is called the Royal Drug case by the United States Supreme Court, the issue being what is the business of insurance?

And the position being taken by these agencies is that the liquidation of an insurance company is not the business of insurance.
