This case centered on plaintiff’s allegations that the defendant insurers simply refused to pay claims under an applicable policy. The insured pleaded the policy was in effect at the time of the injuries at issue. The insurers argued that the policy had been cancelled. The court could not resolve this fundamental issue at the pleading stage, and so denied the motion to dismiss the insured’s bad faith claim.
