Tortfeasor was not Volunteer Worker
Liability policy covered damages by volunteer workers. Policy holder, through employee, retained one person to repair forklift, who retained a second person to do that work. While driving the forklift, second person collided with Dry and Dry got a big judgment against him. Dry then sued the liability insurer to get his money. But he didn't get any. The policy covered volunteer workers, but Second person / tortfeasor did not fit within the definition of a "volunteer worker" under the policy because second person had no authority from policy holder to do work. The policy required that volunteer workers be directed by the insured.
