Insured v. National Insurance Company

Represented a national insurance company against claims of bad faith, breach of contract and negligence. Plaintiff’s home suffered wind damage and water loss in October 2007, but the plaintiff failed to file suit against her insurer until March 2009. The Southern District of Ohio held that the plaintiff’s claims for coverage and negligence were barred by the policy’s one-year suit limitations provision, and the insurer had not waived the limitations period. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit affirmed summary judgment for our client.
