Colorado Firm Dismissed from Complex Class Action Case on a Preliminary Motion

Chipman Glasser, LLC recently obtained prompt dismissal for a Colorado-based company that was named as a defendant in a nation-wide class action that involved potentially millions of class members. The client is a local Denver success story that administers insurance benefits on behalf of major national and regional health insurance companies. Sued in federal district court, the client was facing tens of millions of dollars in exposure for alleged RICO and ERISA violations. Our motion to dismiss argued that the plaintiffs were contorting the RICO and ERISA statutes in an attempt to create liability for ordinary business practices. The court—the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado—found that the plaintiffs’ claims against our client were unfounded and granted our motion to dismiss, saving our client the cost and hassle of proceeding to discovery and trial.
