ATLANTA - An 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on Feb. 4 found no error in a trial court's decision to not give preclusive effect to a state court's finding that a decedent was not an employee of a business that was sued for wrongful death, affirming a judgment that the business's insurer did not breach its contract or act in bad faith in denying coverage in the underlying suit (Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co., et al. v. Housan Sharif, et al., No. 13-11151, 11th Cir.; 2014 U.S. App. LEXIS 2114).
