In this case, the plaintiff attempted to bring various claims against an insurer, including a bad faith claim. Pennsylvania is not a direct action state. The pleadings revealed that the insurer defendant did not insure the plaintiff. The plaintiff thus had no claims against the insurer, and all claims against the insurer were dismissed.
