Defendant's Attorney: Tulsa, Oklahom insurance defense lawyer represented the Defendant.

Description: Tulsa, Oklahoma insurance law lawyers represented the Plaintiff who sued the Defendant on a bad faith breach of insurance contract theory.

"In a growing number of jurisdictions today, courts are recognizing
a new cause of action affording greater protection to the economic in-
terests and mental security of parties to special contractual relation-
ships.' This movement has developed in the context of insurance
industry litigation. The cause of action is in tort with a corresponding
effect in the law of contracts.' These developments establish the princi-
ple that, in contractual relationships, "bad faith conduct" that precipi-
tates or exacerbates a breach of contract, may be regarded as tortious."
