The Plaintiff (“Stevens”), in an action seeking entitlement to long-term disability benefits, brought an application for production of documents and information relating to his allegations of bad faith against the disability insurer (“Sun Life”). The court held that the contract claim relating to benefits should be severed from the bad faith claim, with the contract claim to be determined first.
