Melissa Bailey Obtains Dismissal of Numerous Bad Faith Suits Against Homeowner’s Carrier

Melissa Bailey secured the dismissal of multiple bad faith claims filed against a homeowner’s insurance carrier.  Melissa and the CSVL general liability team argued that the civil actions, brought by a public adjuster via assignment from the policyholder, violated the policy’s non-assignment clause and was invalid.  In the absence of a valid assignment, the public adjuster lacked standing to bring the suits.  The Gwinnett County court agreed and dismissed the suits.
