Bad Faith Claim Dismissed; Classification Of Disability Was Not Made In Bad Faith

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A bad faith claim cannot stand because the insured failed to prove that the defendant insurers acted in bad faith in classifying the insured's disability as being caused by a sickness rather than an injury, an Ohio federal judge said Feb. 19 (Mukesh R. Shah, M.D. v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., et al., No. 16-1124, S.D. Ohio, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 25695).
