Motion to Sever and Stay Post-Koken Bad Faith Claim Denied in Northumberland County

In what may be the first decision of its kind out of Northumberland County, Judge Hugh A. Jones denied a UIM carrier's Motion to Sever and Stay a Bad Faith claim in the case of Kerchoff v. Donegal Ins. Group, No. 16-CV-1266 (C.P. Northumberland Jan. 4, 2017 Jones, J.).

This Post-Koken matter involved bad faith and breach of contract UIM claims asserted following a motor vehicle accident.

Attorney Valeen Hykes of the Frackville, PA law firm of Michael J. O'Connor & Associates, LLC was the primary attorney for the Plaintiff in this matter.  I send thanks to Attorney David A. Miller of the same firm for bringing this decision to my attention.
