Young v. Reliance Standard Life Insurance Co.
After an insurer under an ERISA plan imposed an offset for disability payments as a result of an insured's settlement with a third-party tortfeasor, the insured filed suit, and subsequently, the insurer withdrew the offset and sought dismissal of the lawsuit based on jurisdictional grounds, but a magistrate of the Western District of Texas found standing was an improper theory and mootness was not established; therefore, the magistrate judge recommended denying the insurer's motion to dismiss.
