JUNE 2018 BAD FAITH CASES: BERG BAD FAITH DECISION RE-CONFIRMED SIX DAYS AFTER ITS WITHDRAWAL (Pennsylvania Superior Court)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On May 31, 2018, the Superior Court’s April 9, 2018, 2-1 decision reversing the trial court’s $21 Million award in Berg v. Nationwide was withdrawn, after the Court granted reconsideration. Just a few days later, on June 5, 2018, the Court issued another 2-1 decision along the same lines as the first decision, with the majority again vacating and directing entry of judgment for the insurer, and former Justice Stevens dissenting.

The analysis of the April 9th majority and dissent can be found here.

As noted in the Court’s May 31st Order, the plaintiffs are not precluded from seeking en banc reconsideration of the panel’s June 5th Opinion.
