Alabama Federal Judge Allows Most Retiree Claims In Suit Over Canceled Life Insurance

Mealey's (September 29, 2016, 1:06 PM EDT) -- MONTGOMERY, Ala. — An Alabama federal judge on Sept. 27 allowed most claims to proceed in consolidated class actions alleging that Allstate Insurance Co. improperly ended retirees’ promised lifetime benefits, saying the plaintiffs have stated a claim that Allstate’s plan did not include, or was ambiguous as to whether it included, a provision under which Allstate reserved the right to cancel the retirees’ life insurance policies (Garnet Turner, et al. v. Allstate Insurance Company, No. 2:13-cv-685, 2:15-cv-406, M.D. Ala.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 132113).
