Bad Faith - Excess UM Policy - Motion for Summary Judgment Granted
In 2012, Mr. Keller and Mr. Glas represented an excess UM/UIM insurer in a case involving bad faith allegations. Just before discovery was complete, defendants filed a Motion for Summary Judgment on the issue of penalties and fees under La. R.S. 22:1973. The trial court granted the motion finding that plaintiff did not have sufficient evidence to prove his bad faith claim at trial.
