Cussler v. Crusader Entertainment, LLC
Year 2009
Court California Supreme Court
Case Number S181428
  • Bad Faith
  • California

UP argued that the Court of Appeal’s reversal of a jury verdict threatens the most basic expectation of a contracting party—that the other party will not act in bad faith to deprive it of the benefit of its bargain. This issue is of particular importance because insurance contracts routinely grant discretion to insurance companies, and insureds rely on that discretion being exercised in good faith.
