Liberty Mutual Wins On Appeal And Gets UPS Driver's Bad Faith Claim Overturned
By Lonce Lamonte - November 3, 2019

A divided appeals court in Mississippi on October 29th, 2019, Tuesday, ruled that Liberty Mutual will not have to pay $100,000 in damages which was awarded by the lower court in a civil suit filed by a United Parcel Service (UPS) driver. 

The jury in 2017 awarded Anthony Lee Tutor $500,000 in damages to be paid by UPS and $100,000 in damages to be paid by Liberty Mutual.  But only Liberty Mutual appealed. 

Anthony Lee Tutor made a workers’ compensation claim in 2011.  He claimed he injured his back on the job but UPS denied he had a work comp claim.  UPS instead allowed Tutor to file for short-term disability for an injury that was not work related, UPS alleged, in spite of Tutor’s protests.
