However, the judge's declaration that Preferred had no duty to defend Joseph is vacated and shall be replaced by a declaration that Preferred had a duty to defend Joseph. The judgment as to count II is vacated and shall be replaced by a declaration that Preferred is entitled to equitable contribution and that Vermont shall reimburse fifty percent of the defense costs expended by Preferred in defending Joseph. *Notice.
