Mealey's (May 25, 2016, 9:07 AM EDT) -- SAN FRANCISCO — A federal district court did not err in granting summary judgment in favor of an insurer in an insurance breach of contract and bad faith lawsuit because an insured failed to provide evidence showing that she was entitled to underinsured motorist benefits at the time she filed her claim, a Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel ruled May 18 (Carol Sierzega v. Country Preferred Insurance Co., No. 14-15979, 9th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 9087).
