A live oral argument before Division 1 of the Arizona Court of Appeals will be the center piece of this year’s AADC annual meeting and conference. The case of Sloan v. Farmers Insurance will be argued to the court. This case is an insurance bad faith case in which Farmers obtained a defense verdict at trial only to have that verdict overturned by the trial court pursuant to Rule 60(C)(6) due to subsequent DPS determinations that two Phoenix Fire Department investigators had engaged in misconduct related to the investigation of Sloan who was initially charged with arson.
