Motor Carrier Transportation Anti-Indemnity Statutes Case Law Updated in Contractual Risk Transfer

Most courts have not had any trouble interpreting motor carrier transportation anti-indemnity statutes, a fact illustrated by a recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit in Chapman v. Hiland Partners GP Holdings, LLC, 862 F.3d 1103 (8th Cir. 2017). That said, courts sometimes enforce state motor carrier transportation anti-indemnity statutes with surprising results and without providing much explanation for their decisions, as evidenced by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana's decision in Gaulden v. Buzzi Unicem USA, Inc., 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 101690 (E.D. La. Jun. 29, 2017). This release of Contractual Risk Transfer expands the discussion of motor carrier transportation anti-indemnity statutes to include the Chapman and Gaulden cases.
