- An insurance coverage/bad faith action filed by a homeowner against her insurance carrier in which the insured homeowner plaintiff’s home was burglarized and she made a claim for stolen personal property and damage to the flooring at the home as a result of the burglary. The carrier denied coverage for the personal property pursuant to the forced entry requirement in the policy and disputed the amount the insured was entitled to for the property damage. The defense also contended the claim was fraudulent. The plaintiff also sought punitive damages. The matter was ultimately settled for a complete release and dismissal of the action.
