California Law Enforcement Association (CLEA) and California Administration Reach Legal and Favorable Settlement in Lawsuit Against The Insurance and Benefit Trust of PORAC and Myers Steven & Toohey
As many of you might be aware, CLEA, our sister LTD organization who serves nearly 20,000 law enforcement Participants statewide and California Administration, its Plan Administrators, had jointly filed a lawsuit against the Insurance & Benefits Trust (I&B Trust) of PORAC and Myers Stevens & Toohey back in November 2011.
CLEA and California Administration charged I&B Trust and Myers Stevens & Toohey with unfair competition, making false statements to potential customers, misrepresenting that their plan was backed by a reinsurer, and various other causes.
We are pleased to report that CLEA has reached a favorable settlement, which also includes payment to CLEA and California Administration that covers their legal costs for filing the lawsuit and protects CLEA's and California Administration's reputations. This is a huge victory for CLEA and California Administration and it prevents I&B Trust and Myers Stevens & Toohey from saying things that simply aren't true to individuals or groups in the law enforcement community looking for the best LTD product available.
As you can imagine, CAPF is pleased with this announcement since many of our individuals and groups over the past 28 years have also been subject to similar issues by representatives from Myers Stevens & Toohey who service the CSFA organization. Hopefully, this settlement sends a strong message that these kind of "false statements" and "misrepresentations" will not be tolerated and people will be held accountable.
Congratulations to both CLEA and California Administration for "winning the good fight." Gene Dangel, CAPF President
