  • A Nevada federal district court remanded a bad faith case removed to federal court under diversity jurisdiction by an insurer, finding that the removing insurer had not established the $75,000 jurisdictional minimum, despite that the complaint alleged bad faith, punitive damages and attorney’s fees and the plaintiff had apparently incurred medical expenses of some $55,000.
