8th Circuit: Oral Notice of COBRA Continuation Rights Sufficient (PDF)
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth CircuitLink to more items from this source
Oct. 10, 2002

Excerpt: The district court concluded that sufficient oral notice satisfies the statutory requirement, noting that [29 U.S.C.] § 1166(a)(1) expressly provides for written notice when coverage under a group plan commences, but § 1166(a)(4) only provides that the administrator 'shall notify' in the case of a qualifying event. We agree. [Chestnut v. Montgomery, No. 02-1243 (8th Cir. Oct. 8, 2002)]
