Washington Court Holds Stipulated Covenant Judgment Sets Minimum Amount of Damages in Bad Faith Case. (from FC&S Legal: The Insurance Coverage Law Information Center)
Recently, Division One of the Court of Appeals of Washington State affirmed a jury verdict awarding $13 million in damages to a passenger injured in a car accident, finding that the $4.15 million agreed amount of the covenant
judgment in the insurance bad faith case sets a floor, not a ceiling, on the damages a jury can award.
In Miller v. Kenny and Safeco Ins. Co., the Court of Appeals ruled on several additional issues on appeal including whether evidence of an insurance company’s loss reserves is properly admissible at trial.
