Magistrate Judge: Insured’s Reliance On Breach Of Contract Claim Not Enough
(August 5, 2016, 12:36 PM EDT) -- SCRANTON, Pa. — A federal magistrate judge on July 21 recommended that an insurer’s motion to dismiss in an insurance breach of contract and bad faith lawsuit be granted in part because an insured has relied solely on her breach of contract claims and conclusory allegations in making her claim that the insurer acted in bad faith in handling her homeowners insurance claim (Beata Rogowski v. Foremost Insurance Co., No. 15-1606, M.D. Pa.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 95930).
