An insurance company attempted to defeat a couple's bad faith insurance claim because the homeowners had not completed any legal actions regarding breach of contract. The trial court agreed that the plaintiffs needed to show that they had already gained a favorable ruling against the insurance company before making a bad faith claim. The court dismissed their case, but the appeals court reversed the decision and sent the case back to trial. The Florida appeals court rejected the citation of a 1991 case as justification for dismissing the case. It found that the language in that decision did not establish breach of contract actions as prerequisites for bad faith lawsuits.
