Eighth Circuit: District Court Improperly Resolved Factual Disputes on Summary Judgment in ERISA Benefits Case
Jackson Lewis P.C.Link to more items from this source
Dec. 8, 2021

"[T]he Eighth Circuit ruled that the district court's decision on summary judgment was improper because it weighed evidence, made credibility determinations, and made findings on disputed factual questions in the administrative record.... The Eighth Circuit concluded, however, that the district court's error was harmless ... [and] affirmed the district court's decision granting plaintiff summary judgment. Of controlling import, the parties confirmed that neither had new evidence to submit should the court remand the case for a bench trial." [Avenoso v. Reliance Standard Life Ins. Co., No. 21-1772 (8th Cir. Nov. 30, 2021)]
