York v. American Investor Life, et al., U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas (2003)

Denise Reid Hoggard

Case Conclusion Date:January 1, 2003

Practice Area:Employment / Labor

Outcome:Case was resolved prior to trial

Description:Together with co-counsel Leon Marks, I obtained preliminary injunctive relief returning health care coverage to Mr. York. He had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and because of failure to properly provide him a COBRA notice, his health insurance coverage was terminated while he was hospitalized and unable to return to work. Before the case was filed, Mr. York had been denied a bone marrow transplant which his doctor later testified was critical for him.
