Aetna, Inc Update

On October 20, 2018, Nichols Kaster, PLLP filed a Notice of Appeal to the Second Circuit for the September 30th, 2018 Order granting Aetna Life Insurance’s motion for summary judgement and denying the Plaintiff’s motion.  Since then, our office has been working with Adam Hansen of Apollo Law to fully brief the legal issues on appeal.  Our first brief was filed with the Second Circuit on February 27th, 2019. Aetna’s responsive brief is due on May 10, 2019.  The appeal will not be fully briefed until this summer.  Once fully briefed, the Second Circuit will set a hearing date.  We’ll continue to provide updates as the appeal process moves along.
