Judge: Insureds Properly Pleaded Bad Faith Allegation In Amended Complaint

Mealey's (September 8, 2016, 1:47 PM EDT) -- MILWAUKEE — A federal judge in Wisconsin on Sept. 2 denied an insurer’s motion to dismiss in an insurance bad faith lawsuit, ruling that the insureds’ inclusion of a letter in their amended complaint that properly spelled out the terms of their bad faith claim does not “inherently” contradict the bad faith allegations made by the insureds in their amended complaint (Elizabeth Baires, et al. v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co., No. 16-402, E.D. Wis.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 119155).
