Motion to Sever and Stay Bad Faith Claim Granted in York County

In the case of Miller v. Conn and Penn Nat'l Ins., No. 2019-SU-000078 (C.P. York Co. Feb. 27, 2020 Vedder, J.), the Court granted the UIM carrier's Motion to Sever and Stay the Plaintiff's Bad Faith claims from the third party and UIM claims pled in the case.  No Opinion was issued with the Order.

In the continuing absence of appellate authority on this issue, a split of authority continues across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Check out the Post-Koken Scorecard on the Tort Talk blog (www.TortTalk.com) for the latest.

I send thanks to Attorney Peter J. Speaker of the Harrisburg, PA office of Thomas, Thomas & Hafer for bringing this case to my attention.
