NEW CUMBERLAND — A woman who is the personal representative of her deceased husband's estate is suing The Prudential Insurance Company of America, a life insurance company, citing alleged failure to pay benefits.

Dawn E. Powell, as executrix of the estate of Stephen M. Powell, filed a complaint on July 20 in Hancock Circuit Court against The Prudential Insurance Company of America, alleging that the insurance company wrongfully denied her claim for benefits.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she has not received benefits due under the life insurance policy of her deceased husband. The plaintiff holds The Prudential Insurance Company of America responsible because the defendant allegedly required her to secure a court order that directs the defendant on the distribution of a death benefit claim.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant ordering that the proceeds of the insurance policy are an asset of S. Powell Inc., that her husband was the sole owner of S. Powell Inc., an order for the defendant to immediately distribute the monies of the life insurance policy and such other relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Christopher K. Blair of Rokisky, Wilharm, Blair & Rokisky in Weirton.
