“Alabama Supreme Court reverses decision in Hurricane Opal lawsuit”

In Jones v. Alfa Mutual Ins. Co., Ms. 1060179 (Ala. June 13 2008), the Alabama Supreme Court reversed a trial court’s ruling that Alfa did not act in bad faith in its handling of an insurance claim arising from Hurricane Opal in October 1995.  The Supreme Court sent the case back for a trial on "abnormal" bad faith based on failure to investigate and breach of contract.  For more information, follow the link to "Alabama Supreme Court reverses decision in Hurricane Opal lawsuit" from the Mobile Press-Register.
