In Cicon v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, the Court reiterated the long-standing proposition: “Pennsylvania law does not recognize a separate breach of the contractual duty of good faith and fair dealing where said claim is subsumed by a separately pled breach of contract claim.” The court then dismissed that separate claim.

Date of Decision:  March 4, 2015
