This week's article focuses upon the recent Indiana Court of Appeals decision Pistalo v. Progressive in which the court held that a bad faith claim against an insurance company could progress even though the policy holder had deceased and the only asset of her estate was the insurance policy. The case also takes a brief look at the 9th Circuit decision in Du v. Allstate and the competing concepts of the "judgment rule" and the "payment rule."
