Lightfoot Obtains Summary Judgment for Insurance Company in Breach of Contract/Bad Faith Case

Lightfoot attorneys Terry McCarthy, Ivan Cooper, and Sandy Hooper obtained summary judgment for an out of state insurance company in a breach of contract/bad faith action filed by a local business. The plaintiff alleged that the insurance company wrongfully denied its claim and demonstrated conduct that was “shocking, bad faith, and unconscionable” along the way. Summary judgment was granted in favor of the insurance company on all counts after multiple hearings, which included unsuccessful efforts by the plaintiff to strike virtually all evidence that the Lightfoot lawyers filed in support of the summary judgment motion.
