IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 7, 2012
JACOB WINDING, PLAINTIFF,
ALLSTATE INSURANCE COMPANY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
AND RELATED COUNTER-CLAIM ORDER
On November 1, 2011, the magistrate judge filed findings and recommendations (ECF No. 105), which were served on the parties and which contained notice that any objections to the findings and recommendations were to be filed within fourteen days. On November 15, 2011, plaintiff filed objections to the findings and recommendations (ECF No. 109), and on December 2, 2011, defendant Allstate filed a response to plaintiff's objections (ECF No. 110), all of which have been considered by the court.
In accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C) and Local Rule 304, this court has conducted a de novo review of this case. Having carefully reviewed the file, the court finds the findings and recommendations to be supported by the record and by the proper analysis.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that:
1. The Findings and Recommendations filed November 1, 2011, are ADOPTED, with the exception of pages 17, line 15 through 20, line 13, as this court need not reach the issues covered by those pages for the reasons set forth in the Findings and Recommendations themselves.
2. Defendant Allstate Insurance Company's Alternative Motion for Partial Summary Judgment/Summary Adjudication addressed to plaintiff's claims against it (ECF No. 60) is granted in part and denied in part. Specifically, it is ordered that defendant Allstate Insurance Company is granted summary judgment as to plaintiff's claim for insurance bad faith and the corresponding request for punitive damages, but that the motion for summary judgment is denied in all other respects.
3. Defendant Allstate Insurance Company's Motion for Summary Judgment addressed to its counter-claim (ECF No. 59) is denied.
