Bad Faith Claim Against Disability Income Insurer To Proceed, Judge Says

SCRANTON, Pa. - A Pennsylvania federal judge on Jan. 13 denied a disability income insurer's motion for partial summary judgment on a bad faith claim because the insured provided sufficient evidence from which a jury could find that the insurer acted in bad faith in denying the claim for disability income benefits (Joseph D. Dileo v. Federated Life Insurance Co., No. 18-628, M.D. Pa., 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5003).
