John Craver and Robin Bowers defended an insurance carrier in a two week trial at the end of July in which the insured entered into a Nunn agreement. A Judicial Arbiter Group arbitrator awarded $2,200,000 in an arbitration which the carrier chose not to defend. A Nunn agreement was then entered by the insured with the Plaintiff. A third party bad faith case was tried in Boulder in which the Plaintiff alleged that the carrier failed to reasonably investigate, settle or defend the claim. The carrier had used staff counsel to defend the underlying litigation. The case was tried before a Boulder jury and a defense verdict was rendered for the carrier. The case involved multiple rulings on evidence and law that may be of interest to others.
