Howley v. Mellon Fin. Corp., 08-1748

By FindLaw Staff on August 31, 2010 10:50 PM

Howley v. Mellon Fin. Corp., 08-1748, concerned a challenge to the district court's grant of plaintiff's motion for summary judgment, in plaintiff's suit for benefits and for unlawful discrimination under ERISA, as well as several related state law claims, arising from denial of plaintiff's claim for benefits under defendant's Displacement Program.  In affirming the judgment, the court held that, although the district court erred in applying a heightened standard of review and by considering the extra-record evidence that managers helped plan plaintiff's termination prior to the sale of the company, it is nonetheless clear that defendant abused its discretion in denying plaintiff's claim for benefits.
