Meyer v. CUNA Insurance Co. (W.D.Pa. #03-602)

Mark T. Coulter

Case Conclusion Date:January 26, 2006

Practice Area:Class Action

Outcome:Ruling for my client, class certification granted.

Description:Older disabled worker was terminated from disability benefits, based on insurance company position that if he could perform any type of work, he was not considered disabled under their policy. We argued that the policy was ambiguous, and could reasonably be interpreted in a way which provided continued coverage, and sought a class certification to advance the rights of all similar individuals who the insurer had incorrectly denied benefit to under this policy interpretation.
