Disability Plan's Appeal Dismissed; Order Was Not Appealable, Panel Says

CINCINNATI - The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Dec. 11 dismissed a disability plan's appeal for lack of jurisdiction after determining that the district court's ruling was not a final decision because the merits of the disability claim have yet to be resolved (Sherry Laake v. Benefits Committee, Western& Southern Financial Group Company Flexible Benefits Plan, et al., No. 19-3233, 6th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 36634).
