Tenth Circuit: Opinions, 9/27/10

The Tenth Circuit on Monday issued one published opinion and two unpublished opinions.

Published

In Flores v. Monumental Life Ins. Co., the Court affirmed the district court’s grant of summary judgment for Petitioner’s bad-faith and negligence per se claims, but reversed and remanded the district court’s grant of summary judgment for Petitioner’s breach of contract claims. Petitioner had accidental death insurance that provided compensation should death occur as the result of an injury caused by an accident; benefits were denied under the policy as death was found to be caused by sickness, rather than directly by an earlier fall. However, because Petitioner may be entitled to benefits due under the insurance policy, summary judgment was inappropriate.

Unpublished

Mauchlin v. Bier

United States v. Williams
