Internist Eye Condition
Represented a life insurance company in breach of contract, bad faith and punitive damages case. The plaintiff, an internist, claimed he could not perform the duties of an internist, because of a long-standing eye condition. The plaintiff’s attorney rejected attempts at settlement, demanding $2,000,000. Forced to litigate the case on the merits, Lewis and Roca filed a motion for summary judgment on all claims, which the court granted. The plaintiff appealed to the Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals affirmed in a reported decision. The trial court also granted the client attorneys’ fees.
