Bad Faith Claim Severed From Post-Koken Lawsuit in Bucks County

On February 16, 2010 Judge Clyde W. Waite of the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas sustained the Preliminary Objections of the UIM carrier requesting that the bad faith claim be severed from the third party claims and the UIM claim all filed under one caption in the case of Hartman v. Schofield and Progressive Insurance Company, 2009 - Civil - 11956 (Bucks Co. Feb. 16, 2010 Waite, J.). The Judge offered this decision in an Order without an Opinion.

I thank Robert Dapper, Esquire of the Pittsburgh law firm of Dapper, Baldasare, Benson, Behling & Kane for bringing this case to my attention.
