Couple Says Insurer Wrongly Denied $75,000 Damage Claim
A couple from Montana who rented out their greenhouse to a company that grows medical marijuana and had its operation subjected to a federal raid is claiming their insurer acted in bad faith for denying its $75,000 damage claim.
Scott and Stephanie Nelson, the owners of Helena Glass and Stove Works, rented a greenhouse they owned to Montana Cannibis so it could grow medical marijuana, according to Claims Journal. As it turns out, the broker in the transaction never relayed the appropriate information to Farmers Alliance Mutual Insurance Co.
In March 2011 the greenhouse was the subject of a federal raid. Among other things, the raid caused damage to the greenhouse, leading the Nelson’s to file a $75,000 damage claim with the insurance company. However, the Nelsons were surprised when they learned that their claim had been denied.
In an effort to get their claim paid to them, the couple brought an unfair insurance denial lawsuit against the company. No decision has yet been reached in the lawsuit.
