Colorado Court of Appeals Decision: In Crowell vs. ICAO, Jordan Levine made history, shaping the law that penalizes insurance companies for improperly handling claims. In Crowell, Marriott Corporation denied a necessary surgery for Ms. Crowell for 184 days. While the Court found that a penalty was to apply, it only awarded it for one day. Mr. Levine took the case to the Colorado Court of Appeals and changed the law to now instruct judges that they must award penalties for ongoing conduct for each and every day the violation/denial continues. In this case, the Court remanded the case to the Judge to enter an Order consistent with Its decision that the penalty shall be for 184 days.
