ERISA Class Action Lawsuit Against Partners Healthcare Moves Forward
On January 24, Judge F. Dennis Sayler IV, US District Court for the District of Massachusetts, has allowed an Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) class action lawsuit against Partners Healthcare to move forward. The lawsuit accuses the company of using an outdated mortality table to calculate benefits.
The plaintiff, Scott Belknap, sued his former employer in June of 2019, claiming Partners Healthcare has reduced the value of his annuity payments by more than $10,000 because it uses an actuarial table from 1951 that has outdated assumptions.
Bailey Glasser lawyers Gregory Porter, Mark Boyko, and Alexandra Serber represent the plaintiff in this case. Co-counsel includes Mark Kindall, Robert A. Izard, and Douglas P. Needham of Izard Kindall & Raabe LLP.
