The carrier brought action against its insured alleging violations of the New Jersey Insurance Fraud Prevention Act, breach of contract, breach of good faith and fair dealing, and unjust enrichment. The trial court dismissed the claims and the appellate division affirmed. Both courts found the evidence did not support a fraud claim, and that any such claim was subject to a general release.
