Insurer Did Not Act In Bad Faith; Conversion Claim Is Not Covered, Judge Holds
(September 2, 2015, 11:47 AM EDT) -- WAYCROSS, Ga. — An insurer did not act in bad faith by denying coverage because its policy does not cover a conversion claim whether it was “willful and malicious” or “negligent,” a Georgia federal judge ruled Sept. 1, finding that the claim is not an “accident” (Mary Jean Spivey and Douglas Asphalt Paving, Inc., as assignees of Dixie Roadbuilders, Inc. v. American Casualty Company of Reading, Pennsylvania, No. 15-004, S.D. Ga.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 116407).
