Walker, et al. v. Life Insurance Company of the Southwest
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA; CASE NO.: CV-10-9198-JVS (RNBx)
Class action litigation ("the Lawsuit") involving Life Insurance Company of the Southwest ("LSW" or "Defendant") is currently pending before Judge James V. Selna of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ("the Court"). On July 23, 2013, the Court approved a Class Notice reflecting that some, but not all, of the Plaintiffs' claims in the litigation had been certified to be tried as a class action.
If you are a current or former LSW SecurePlus Provider or SecurePlus Paragon policyholder who resided in California at the time the Policy was issued and who purchased the Policy on or after September 24, 2006 ("the Class") this litigation may affect you.
The Plaintiffs allege that LSW made certain misrepresentations and failed to disclose other material facts regarding the Policies. LSW denies all wrongdoing. The Class Notice was mailed on August 19, 2013 to individuals identified by Defendant as members of the Class.
If you fall within the Class definition, you have to decide whether to stay in the Class or ask to be excluded from the Class. If you decide to exclude yourself, you must submit a written request to exclude yourself that is postmarked no later than November 19, 2013.
If you fall within the Class definition and you do not ask to be excluded from the Class, you keep the possibility of receiving a share of any money or other benefits that may result from a trial or a settlement. However, you will also give up the right to file your own lawsuit against LSW regarding issues raised in the Lawsuit.
