Bad Faith Claim Dismissed Where Delays Found To Be Caused by Insured

In his recent decision in the property loss bad faith case of Turner v. State Farm Fire & Cas. Co., No. 3:15-CV-906, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 81922 (M.D. Pa. May 30, 2017 Conaboy, J.), Judge Richard P. Conaboy provides an excellent summary of the current status of bad faith law and reviews the validity of bringing a bad faith claim where the insured's own conduct allegedly led to the delays at issue.
