Missouri Panel Affirms Ruling For Insurer In Malpractice Coverage Dispute

ST. LOUIS - A Missouri appeals panel on April 23 affirmed a lower court's finding that a 2009 insurance policy did not apply to the causes of action in an underlying legal malpractice action, further affirming that the insurer did not act in bad faith in refusing to settle the suit (The Bar Plan Mutual Insurance Co. v. Chesterfield Management Associates, et al., No. ED98826, Mo. App., Eastern Dist., Div. 1; 2013 Mo. App. LEXIS 485).
