Jordan v. Allstate Ins. Co., B187706

In suit against an insurer for breach of contract, bad faith, and declaratory relief, summary judgment for insurer on the bad faith claim is reversed where, while the insurer-s interpretation of its policy leading to the denial of plaintiff's claim was reasonable, it did not follow that defendant's resulting claim denial could be justified in the absence of a full, fair and thorough investigation of all of the bases of the claim that was presented, and plaintiff raised several triable issues of fact with respect to the adequacy of defendant's investigation of her claim.
