Mayer Brown issued the following announcement on May 2.

Mayer Brown announced that Los Angeles-based Litigation & Dispute Resolution partner Elizabeth Mann has been named to The National Law Journal’s (NLJ) list of “Health Care Law Trailblazers.” The inaugural list recognizes 25 individuals in the legal industry who have made an impact in the health care sector through new types of strategies or innovative court cases.

A co-leader of the firm’s Health Care practice, Ms. Mann was selected by NLJ for her vast experience representing clients in many different areas, including wellness and coaching programs. NLJ highlighted her continued work with American Specialty Health (ASH), including the successful defense of the company in a class action in Oregon over Section 2706, the antidiscrimination provision of the Affordable Care Act. The lawsuit, filed by naturopathic physicians and their patients, claimed ASH discriminated against them by denying claims that were otherwise covered when fulfilled by other medical providers.

“We defended the case very purposely by establishing that no plaintiffs had any injury, and therefore they had no standing,” Ms. Mann told the publication. “We got a judgment that you can’t ever certify a class because everyone’s health is different and therefore claims cannot be brought as a class action.”
