(December 30, 2016, 8:30 AM EST) -- SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — A Missouri appellate panel on Dec. 21 overturned a ruling awarding summary judgment to an insurance company that allegedly provided coverage to a physician accused of inappropriate sexual behavior with patients, finding that a trial court judge erred when concluding that the physician intended to deceive the company when sending a letter in July 2010 stating that he had not been named in a medical malpractice suit for years (Keystone Mutual Insurance Company v. Christine Kunz, et al., Nos. SD34540, SD34543, Mo. App., Southern Dist.; Div. 1; 2016 Mo. App. LEXIS 1323)....
