SACRAMENTO – A Solano County woman alleges she is disabled but was denied long-term disability benefits.

Cynthia James filed a complaint on June 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and Sutter Health Long Term Disability Plan alleging violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was found to be disabled and filed a claim for long-term disability benefits in 2015 but was denied by the defendants. The plaintiff holds Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and Sutter Health Long Term Disability Plan responsible because the defendants allegedly denied benefits to plaintiff without providing a reasonable explanation.

The plaintiff seeks payment of disability benefits, reinstatement to the plan, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Glenn R. Kantor, Corinne Chandler and Andrew M. Kantor of Kantor & Kantor LLP in Northridge.
