CHARLESTON — A Morgan Stanley employee is suing Metropolitan Life, alleging denial of benefits.
Casey Robinson of Charleston filed a complaint May 4 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia against Metropolitan Life Insurance Company alleging the insurance administrator breached its obligations to act in the best interests of the participants of the Morgan Stanley plan.
According to the complaint, since Nov. 29, 2014, Robinson has stopped receiving long-term disability benefits due to him under the terms of the Morgan Stanley plan. The plaintiff alleges Metropolitan Life, despite approving his benefits from Nov. 29, 2012, through Nov. 28, 2014, capriciously denied Robinson's entitlement to disability benefits from and after Nov. 29, 2014.
Robinson seeks trial by jury, recovery of all benefits due under the terms of the Morgan Stanley plan, plus pre-judgment interest, attorney fees and costs and all other appropriate relief. He is represented by attorney John J. Polak of Atkinson & Polak PLLC in Charleston.
