Judge: Insurer Did Not Act In Bad Faith In Handling Of Insurance Claim
Mealey's (April 18, 2016, 1:53 PM EDT) -- McALLEN, Texas — A federal judge in Texas on April 13 granted a motion for summary judgment in favor of an insurer and others, ruling that no breach of contract occurred because the insurer complied with the terms of an appraisal provision under a property insurance policy and, thus, the insurer could not have acted in bad faith (Mark Dizdar, et al. v. State Farm Lloyds, et al., No. 14-514, S.D. Texas; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 49839).
