Neil, Jonathan & Associates vs. Jones et al.
Year 2002
Case Number
  • Tort Damages
  • California

Request for Depublication. Court held that the plaintiff could not state a cause of action for bad faith for the failure to settle claims against him because the conduct in question did not involve the payment of claims by the insured or the failure to settle claims made against the insured. In the Court’s point of view, a tort recovery for an insurer’s bad faith breach is available only in cases involving “the limited issues of bad faith payment of claims and unreasonable failure to settle.”
