Cara Knight and Jackie Booker Win Summary Judgment Dismissing Bad Faith Claims

Cara Knight and Jackie Booker obtained summary judgment in favor of an insurer on plaintiff’s common law and statutory bad faith claims. The UIM insurer investigated the claim and declined to pay benefits because plaintiff was likely more at fault for the accident. The insurer filed a motion for summary judgment on Plaintiff’s extra-contractual claims arguing Plaintiff could not establish that the insurer acted unreasonably in violation of an industry standard. The Court ultimately held that no reasonable jury could find that the insurer unreasonably decided liability adversely to Plaintiff and dismissed the bad faith and unreasonable delay and denial claims.
