We previously reported on Old Republic National Title Insurance Co. v. First American Title Insurance Co., in which the court partially dismissed First American’s claim for breach of good faith and fair dealing to the extent the predicate breach of reinsurance contract claim alleged by First American failed to state a claim. The court has now denied First American’s motion to amend its answer. In the motion, First American attempted to demonstrate the predicate breach of reinsurance contract by contending that Old Republic failed to make payment under the contract based on false accusations and improper document requests. But the court agreed with Old Republic that the claims as pled did not support First American’s new allegations, and could not serve as a basis for a claim for the breach of the utmost duty of good faith. Old Republic Nat. Title Ins. Co. v. First American Title Ins. Co., No. 8:15-cv-126-T-30EAJ (USDC M.D. Fla. July 17, 2015).
