Update to Prior Post on Discovery Opinion (New Jersey Federal)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We originally posted a summary of the New Jersey Federal District Court’s August 2017 opinion in Legends Management Co. v. Affiliated Insurance, concerning various discovery issues. Since that time, two more closely related discovery opinions have issued, as well as an opinion concerning severance and stay of the bad faith claim.

Of note in the third discovery opinion is the Court’s ruling that the insurer, which brought a claim under the Insurance Fraud Act and could be entitled to attorneys fees and costs, did not have to produce its attorney invoices until that claim had been determined on the merits.  Summaries of the three cases can be found here.
