   U.S. Court of Appeals Case No:  15-2202
   U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa - Sioux City    
   [PUBLISHED] [Beam, Author, with Shepherd and Kelly, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Insurance. There was a factual dispute over who should have 
   invoked the policy's language regarding an appraisal procedure after the 
   insured disputed the proposed crop-damage payment and the district court 
   erred in granting the insurer's motion for summary judgment on plaintiff's 
   breach of contract claim; since this issue is relevant to plaintiff's bad 
   faith claim, as well, the district court's order granting the insurer 
   summary judgment on this claim is reversed.

   U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota - Minneapolis    
   [PUBLISHED] [Beam, Author, with Shepherd and Kelly, Circuit Judges] 
   Civil case - Insurance. The district court did not err in excluding 
   certain portions of supplemental reports on the ground they were not 
   disclosed on a timely basis; in any event, plaintiff possessed a 
   substantial amount of admissible evidence to support her theories and was 
   not prejudiced by the exclusion of the evidence to an extent that a 
   fundamental unfairness occurred; challenge to jury instructions rejected.
