This case involved a scheme between a borrower and an attorney hired by a bank to write title opinions so that the borrower could receive loans from the bank.  Due to fraudulent title opinions, multiple loans were cross-collateralized, resulting in a claim in excess of $1 million against the firm's client, a major fidelity bond carrier.  This included an allegation of bad faith handling of the claim.  By propounding calculated discovery and thoroughly preparing the carrier's representative for her deposition, the firm obtained evidence for a successful summary judgment motion which defeated the bad faith claim against the carrier.
