In Aquila v. Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, the court did grantws summary judgment to the insurer on all of the bad faith claims made by the insured ex-wife because, despite being an insured under the policy, she never filed a claim for the theft so she could not qualify as a bad faith plaintiff.
