(April 8, 2016, 12:03 PM EDT) -- SPOKANE, Wash. — A federal judge in Washington on March 30 denied an insurer’s motion for summary judgment in an insurance breach of contract and bad faith lawsuit, ruling that a genuine issue of material fact exists as to whether the insurer breached the insurance contract and acted in bad faith in its handling of an insured’s claim under a professional malpractice policy (Workland & Witherspoon PLLC v. Evanston Insurance Co., No. 14-403, E.D. Wash.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 42637).
