The Iowa Court of Appeals affirms a decision of the district court granting summary judgment to the employer and third party administrator in a bad faith action. On cross-motions for summary judgment, the District Court ruled in favor of the Defendants finding that the employee could not prove that the employer lacked a reasonable basis for denying workers’ compensation benefits. The underlying defense and appeal for the employer and third-party administrator was handled by Amanda Richards assisted by Brandon Lobberecht.
