SAN FRANCISCO – A woman is seeking reinstatement of her disability benefits, alleging they were wrongfully terminated.
Deborah Prince filed a complaint on June 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against The Prudential Insurance Co. of America and Communications & Power Industries Long Term Disability Plan citing violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was found to be disabled and while her benefits were initially approved in 2012, they were later terminated in 2015. The plaintiff holds The Prudential Insurance Co. of America; and Communications & Power Industries Long Term Disability Plan responsible because the defendants allegedly denied plaintiff's disability benefits while she was still disabled under the terms of the plan and while she had sufficient medical records to support her claim.
The plaintiff seeks award all benefits due to plaintiff plus interest, order that plaintiff is entitled to future disability benefits, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Frank N. Darras, Lissa A. Martinez, Susan B. Grabarsky and Phillip S. Bather of Darras Law in Ontario.
