Summary Judgment Granted in Bad Faith Case
Fred Valz and Melissa Bailey obtained summary judgment for their insurer client in a first party bad faith action. The insured claimed that the carrier wrongfully denied coverage for a commercial cargo loss and that denial constituted bad faith under Georgia law. Ruling in favor of the carrier, the Gwinnett County State Court upheld the carrier’s denial, ruling that there was no coverage for the loss and, as a result, all of the insured’s claims against the carrier, including the claim for bad faith, failed as a matter of law.
