Rams II, LLC v. Mass. Bay Ins. Co., CV 136043177S 2016 WL 3266084 (Conn. Sup. Ct. May 23, 2016)

Judge Wilson

In this case, a business owner suffered a loss by virtue of water damage, which the defendant insurer refused to pay for in full. Biller, Sachs, Zito & LeMoult alleged that the insurer breached the insurance contract and violated the Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act, as well as the Connecticut Unfair Insurance Practices Act. Judge Wilson of the Connecticut Superior Court disagreed with a prior ruling in this case, and correctly determined that BSZ&L sufficiently alleged unfair settlement practices that were a frequent and general business practice of the insurer and the case could proceed to a jury. Prior to the start of evidence, the insurance company paid our client’s claim.
