In the article, Bad-Faith Litigation Getting Increased Play, Insurance Law Principal and author of the books Insurance Bad Faith in Pennsylvania and Insurance Bad Faith in New Jersey, Richard L. McMonigle, Jr., offers insight on recent developments in bad faith litigation.

Mr. McMonigle notes that while, "the number of written bad faith opinions in the last five years has increased by 10 or 20 percent," the size of bad faith verdicts, "may have settled down because some U.S. Supreme Court decisions have placed limits on punitive damages awards."
