Moses v. Halstead, No. 08-3088

In an action seeking a garnishment order in Kansas against an insurance company for its alleged negligent or bad faith refusal to settle plaintiff's claim against defendant's insured, judgment for defendant is reversed where the issue was governed by the law of the place where the contract was made, in this case Kansas, and thus the district court erred in applying Missouri law.
