IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
November 13, 2012
JOSEPH MOROSKY, PLAINTIFF,
ALLSTATE INSURANCE COMPANY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Cathy Bissoon
Defendant's Motion (Doc. 17) to sever Plaintiff's bad faith claims is DENIED, for essentially the same reasons as stated in Consugar v. Nationwide Ins. Co. of Amer., 2011 WL 2360208, *6-7 & n.1 (M.D. Pa. Jun. 9, 2011). Defendant's Motion (Doc. 16) for a protective order also is DENIED, although, as Plaintiff agrees, the deadline for Defendant's responses to written discovery is established by reference to the parties' Rule 26(f) conference, not the date that the discovery requests were served. See Pl.'s Opp'n Br. (Doc. 21) at ¶ 6.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
