Following a bench trial in a bad faith action, a Delaware County, Pa., judge has slapped insurer Penn National with a $6 million punitive damages finding in a verdict that also included nearly $2.5 million in compensatory damages.

Johnson v. Pennsylvania National Mutual Casualty Insurance Co. stems from the April 2001 shooting death on the Chester, Pa., street of Sami Toler during a scuffle with Duane Johnson, a married father of three who was insured by a Penn National homeowner’s policy, according to court documents in the case.
