Judge: Insurer Did Not Act In Bad Faith In Denying Defense In Insurance Dispute

Mealey's (April 8, 2016, 10:55 AM EDT) -- SALT LAKE CITY — A federal judge in Utah on April 5 granted an insurer’s motion for summary judgment in an insurance bad faith lawsuit, ruling that the insurer did not act in bad faith in handling a claim under a financial services liability insurance policy because the insurer engaged in a “robust analysis” through a law firm before denying the claim (James Morden, et al. v. XL Specialty Insurance, No. 14-0224, D. Utah; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 42601).
