MH Wins ERISA Preemption Motion

MH attorney Jodi Swick represented a life insurance company in case where plaintiffs were two individuals who were not named beneficiaries of the policy but claimed to be entitled to benefits. MH filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings alleging that the policies were preempted by ERISA. The district court agreed and dismissed the complaint. After the court’s ruling, plaintiffs elected not to file an amended complaint and the case resolved without payment.
