A jury found James Harvey liable for the death of John Potts, who was fatally injured in a traffic crash in 2006. The jury awarded Mr. Potts’ estate $8 million in damages. Mr. Harvey sued his insurance company, GEICO, accusing it of acting in bad faith when it failed to settle Mr. Potts’ claims before trial. Mr. Harvey won his bad faith lawsuit but the Fourth District Court of Appeal overturned the trial court and sent the case back to the trial court for a judgment in favor of GEICO.
