NPR's Jim Zarroli reports that two big insurance companies are trying to avoid making big payouts to cover the liability of Enron directors and officers. Royal Insurance and St. Paul Mercury provided Enron executives with "errors and omissions" coverage. The companies say Enron made "material misrepresentations" on their applications and that the polices are void as a result.
