Hennessy v. Allstate Insurance Co. is yet another district court decision involving the assignment of bad faith claims. Differing from prior decisions in the Eastern District, but consistent with Middle District opinions, this court found insurance bad faith claims assignable. [The Pennsylvania Supreme Court later found such claims could be assigned in Allstate Property and Casualty Insurance Company v. Jared Wolfe.]

Date of Decision: April 14, 2014

Hennessy v. Allstate Ins. Co., CIVIL ACTION NO. 13-6594, 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 51066 (E. D. Pa. April 14, 2014) (Stengel, J.)
