- Excerpt from "Wisconsin Court of Appeals: Insurer Does Not Commit Bad Faith by Refusing to Pay the Undisputed Portion of an Insured’s Claim Where the Policy Does Not Require Payment":

Plaintiff Eagle Fuel Cells-ETC, Inc. (“Eagle”) suffered a loss of business income as a result of a March 27, 2009 fire that damaged both its equipment and building at Eagle’s manufacturing facility. The fire destroyed an autoclave piece of equipment necessary to manufacture its products.

As a result of the diminished capacity of the replacement, Eagle suffered a loss of business income.
