SAN FRANCISCO – A senior engineer for T-Mobile USA Inc. alleges his short-term disability benefits were wrongfully denied.
Ryan Houlgate filed a complaint on Feb. 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against T-Mobile USA Inc. Employee Benefit Plan alleging violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in July 2014, he became disabled and applied for short-term disability benefits, which were denied. The plaintiff holds T-Mobile USA Inc. Employee benefit plan responsible because the defendant allegedly upheld its decision to deny plaintiff's disability benefits despite him being disabled according to the terms of the plan.
The plaintiff seeks pay the plaintiff disability benefits owed, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Brian H. Kim and James P. Keenley of Bolt Keenley Kim LLP in Berkeley.
