Litigation Road: The Story of Campbell v. State Farm Insurance

Files

Description

This text examines the 25-year case that began as an auto accident and concluded by making constitutional law. It produced both a hotly contested negligence trial and a path-breaking insurance bad faith case. Along the way, both the Utah and United States Supreme Courts would make significant rulings on settlement, evidence, and punitive damages. The text demonstrates the manner in which many strands of law and policy coalesce in a lawsuit, illustrating the modern legal landscape of torts, civil litigation, contracts, evidence, insurance, professional responsibility, and negotiation and settlement, as well as trial practice.
