Badiali v. New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Company

Year: 2012
Court: New Jersey Supreme Court
Case Number: A-4870-09T2

This case affords the New Jersey Supreme Court an opportunity to review how the New Jersey lower courts have resolved bad faith claims handling since the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Pickett v. Lloyds, 131 N.J. 457 (1993). UP’s amicus brief argues that the lower courts have slowly eroded the viability of such claims and that the Supreme Court should now revisit and re-affirm the availability of a bad-faith claim handling cause of action in New Jersey.

The brief was prepared on behalf of UP by Carl Salisbury of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton’s New York office.
