Following a house fire, the insurer denied the claim, concluding the fire was arson, and urged the fire marshal to change the his conclusion as to the cause of accident from accidental to arson.  In the insured’s claim against the insurer, the jury awards $504,346 for breach of contract and $1 million for negligent infliction of emotional distress.  The Superior Court refuses to set aside or reduce the verdict.  Riley v. Travelers, 9/26/14
