A federal judge has dismissed a putative class action case brought by a plaintiff asserting ERISA violations against The Prudential Company of America (“Prudential”) and Tufts University (“Tufts”), stemming from premium rate increases to an ERISA group long-term care insurance plan sponsored by plaintiff’s employer, Tufts, and issued by Prudential.
On July 12, 2022, United States District Judge Richard Stearns granted Tufts and Prudential’s respective motions to dismiss the action, Parmenter v. Prudential Insurance Company of America, et al., No. 1:22-CV-10079, Dkt. No. 43 (D. Mass. July 12, 2022), which was originally filed on January 20, 2022 in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
