Case Alert - Keodalah v. Allstate

Scheer.Law PLLC wants to alert you of a favorable new ruling that was issued by the Washington Supreme Court on October 3rd, 2019. In a hard-fought 5-4 decision, the Washington Supreme Court overruled the Court of Appeals and held that employee adjusters cannot be held personally liable for claims of bad faith or Consumer Protection Act claims.

Issue: Whether insurance (employee) adjusters are personally liable for claims of bad faith under RCW 48.01.030 or claims under the Consumer Protection Act (CPA).
