In its Order, the court allowed discovery to proceed as set forth in Judge Wettick’s Wutz Opinion. However, the trial of the bad faith was continued to a later time to allow for the filing a summary judgment and to allow the parties to organize discovery and expert reports.
Tort Talkers may recall that, prior to this Order, the Wutz case had suggested that the bad faith trial begin immediately after the completion of the UIM case.
I send thanks to Attorney Craig W. Beil of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania office of Robb Leonard Mulvihill, LLP for bringing this Order to my attention.
