Western District Federal Court Addresses Alleged Bad Faith Issues in UIM Context

In the case of Alag v. Geico, No. 22-155 (W.D. Pa. Nov. 16, 2022 Lenihan, M.J.), a federal district magistrate judge for the Western District of Pennsylvania addressed various issues in a motor vehicle accident UIM claim with allegations of bad faith.

The court granted the carrier’s Motion to Dismiss the Plaintiff’s claim for breach of the covenant of good faith dealing.

However, the court denied the Motion to Dismiss relative to the bad faith claims and the allegations of violations under the Unfair Trade Practices Act and Consumer Protection Law.

I send thanks to Attorney Joseph Hudock from the Pittsburgh law firm of Summers, McDonnell, Hudock, Guthrie & Rauch for sending this case to my attention.
