Hee is a 2021, opinion dealing with bad faith claims by an insured and the insurance company efforts to dispose of the bad faith claim via summary judgement. The opinion is from the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, and is styled, GeoVera Specialty Insurance Company v. Sam Walker.
The insured is Walker. The insurance company is GeoVera. Walker suffered wind damage and a subsequent theft claim. There are other issues in the case, but only the bad-faith / extra=contractual issues will be looked at here.
Geovera denied the claim and then sued Walker seeking a declaratory judgment that it did not owe any damages to Walker.
