Federal Jurisdiction Does Not Exist; Disability Suit Remanded To State Court

SAN FRANCISCO - A California federal magistrate judge on Nov. 15 remanded a disability claimant's suit after determining that diversity of jurisdiction does not exist because a negligence claim asserted against the insurance agency that sold the disability policies to the claimant may not be time-barred under California law (Mark Bennett, D.D.S. v. Ohio National Life Assurance Corp., et al., No. 19-5774, N.D. Calif., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 198719).
