Part II analyzes the extension of the duty of good faith and fair dealing to acts attributable to the insured and the adoption of the doctrine of comparative bad faith in various jurisdictions. Part III argues for adoption of comparative bad faith as an affirmative defense or independent tort. Part IV shows how this affirmative defense would be applied in Texas.en_US
