A federal jury in Nevada last week awarded $60 million to a Las Vegas man who alleged Paul Revere Life Insurance Co. and the Unum Group denied in bad faith his claim for disability benefits.
This is one of those “be careful what you wish for” cases. In a previous trial, a jury awarded Plaintiff $11.6 million but it was overturned on appeal. So the case was tried again and the second jury awards five times what the first jury awarded.
I would love to know what the settlement offer was in this case.
