Class-action sought for Qwest benefits suit
Wednesday, July 16, 2008
An attorney for the Association for U S West/Qwest retirees
filed a document in U.S. District Court in
Tuesday in an effort to get class-action status for a lawsuit
regarding life-insurance benefits.
The filing comes in response to a brief filed by Qwest last week
stating that should the retirees succeed in winning a
class-action suit, the company might be forced to discontinue
life-insurance benefits for all employees.
