EMH Secures Dismissal with Prejudice of Bad Faith Claim

2015 | Category: Significant Cases

EMH attorneys Jodi Swick and Robert Whitney represented a life insurance company who was sued by a plaintiff alleging a massive conspiracy to deny him benefits under his parents’ life insurance policy. We successfully moved to dismiss three iterations of Plaintiff’s complaint and twice successfully avoided attempts to remand the case to California state court. After the third dismissal, with prejudice, we successfully obtained a bill of costs against Plaintiff. Plaintiff ultimately agreed to voluntarily dismiss his Ninth Circuit appeal in exchange for a waiver of the bill of costs.
