Written by A&P News on July 23rd, 2010. Posted in Bad Faith, Trial

67th District Court for Tarrant County, Texas

Arnold & Placek, P.C. obtained a summary judgment on behalf of the Travelers Group in a workers’ compensation bad faith claim, establishing, as a matter of law that there was no bad faith on the part of Travelers.  Thomas Sauvlet sued Travelers in Tarrant County, Texas contending that their dispute of his unwitnessed bathroom slip and fall accident was a breach of the duty of good faith.  Through carefully tailored discovery, Arnold & Placek was able to establish that, as a matter of law, a reasonable basis existed to dispute the claim.  Judge Don Cosby granted Travelers summary judgment after Arnold & Placek had previously obtained the dismissal of an identical suit Sauvlet had filed in Dallas County.  Kyle Jones represented the Travelers Group.
