ST. LOUIS - Finding that a law firm insured's bad faith claim against its professional liability insurer is not wholly independent of its breach of contract and vexatious refusal claims, a Missouri federal judge on July 22 granted the insurer's motion to dismiss the bad faith claim (The Hullverson Law Firm P.C., et al. v. Liberty Insurance Underwriters Inc., No. 4:12-CV-1994 CAS, E.D. Mo., Eastern Div.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 101640).
