"In actions brought under Pennsylvania’s insurance bad faith statute, 42 Pa. C.S.

As such, although the Avandia decision did not arise from a claim under Section 8371, the Third Circuit’s decision in that case may nevertheless have a significant impact on how bad faith actions are litigated in the Pennsylvania federal courts."
