Harlow vs. Met Life
Based on its findings of fact and conclusions of law, the Court concludes that Plaintiff has adequately established she was “totally disabled” under the terms of the plan during the 24-month period.
Accordingly, the Court reverses MetLife’s May 12, 2016 decision to terminate Plaintiff’s LTD benefits during the 24-month period.
Renzi vs. Aetna Life Insurance
Michael Horrow represented Mr. Renzi in an action in federal court under ERISA to reinstate his LTD benefits. The Court concluded that Aetna incorrectly decided to terminate Mr. Renzi’s LTD benefits and not only ordered Aetna to pay all benefits owed from 2017 to the present, including prejudgment interest, but that Mr. Renzi’s LTD benefits will continue so long as he continues to remain “totally disabled” under the terms of the Plan.
