Pennsylvania Supreme Court Grants Allocatur in Berg v. Nationwide Case

The bad faith case of Berg v. Nationwide, No. 569 MAL 2018 (Pa. March 29, 2019) is a case that began back in 1998.  After a trial court entered a $21 million dollar award against the carrier, the case has since gone up and down the appellate ladder over the past two decades.

In the latest chapter of this case, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently granted allocatur to hear the case and decide whether the Pennsylvania Superior Court erred in its 2018 decision to reverse the award in favor of the insured.  The Supreme Court's Order outlining the questions accepted on appeal can be viewed HERE.

If you are interested in reading summary of the prior decisions in the Berg case, check out this detailed post from the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Insurance Bad Faith Case Law Blog written by Attorney Lee Applebaum of the Philadelphia law firm of Fineman, Krekstein & Harris.  That post can be viewed HERE.
