White v. Montana State Fund

White v. Montana State Fund, 2013 MT 187 (July 12, 2013) (4-1) (Baker, J., for the majority; Cotter, J., dissenting on one issue)

Issue: (1) Whether the district court erred in granting the State Fund’s motion to dismiss White’s claims under Montana’s insurance code; and (2) whether the district court erred in granting the State Fund’s motion for summary judgment regarding White’s common-law claims of bad faith, malicious prosecution, and emotional distress.

Short Answer: (1) No, as the State Fund is explicitly not covered by Title 33, and (2) no.
