Myers v. GEICO General Insurance Company
ORDER granting 16 Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 10/14/2016. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
GEICO GENERAL INSURANCE
Casey Myers and GEICO have a dispute about her underinsured
coverage. Myers submitted bills to her insurance company but GEICO hasn't
paid them. Myers believes and claims this amounts to bad faith. It does not.
The governing Arkansas law is strict. Because Myers hasn't offered evidence
that GEICO acted dishonestly, maliciously, or oppressively, her claim fails as
a matter of law. Aetna Casualty & Surety Co. v. Broadway Arms Corp., 281 Ark.
128, 133, 664 S.W.2d 463, 465 (1984). GEICO's motion for partial summary
judgment, NQ 16, is granted.
