The excellent, and important, TortTalk blog has posted a summary of Monroe County Judge Williamson’s decision in Sabajo v. Allstate, granting summary judgment to the insurer on a UIM bad faith claim. After reviewing the record, Judge Williamson could not find clear and convincing evidence of bad faith conduct in claim handling, or any delay that amounted to bad faith. A copy of the opinion can be found here, Sabajo v. Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Co., Court of Common Pleas Monroe County, No. 7703 Civil 2019 (June 22, 2021) (Williamson, J.)
Our thanks to Attorney Daniel Cummins for bringing this case to our attention.
