LINA Ordered to Pay the McKennon Law Group Attorneys’ Fees and Costs

On May 13, 2014, a respected Central District of California Federal Court Judge, Margaret M. Morrow, issued an Order granting Plaintiff’s Motion for Attorneys’ Fees and Costs. In the Order, Life Insurance Company of North America (“LINA”) was ordered to pay the McKennon Law Group PC approximately $50,000 in attorneys’ fees and costs following the successful resolution of a dispute over long-term disability insurance benefits due pursuant to an ERISA-governed group policy. LINA reinstated the plaintiff’s claim for long-term disability benefits shortly after the McKennon Law Group PC filed the Complaint. In the Order, Judge Morrow approved Robert McKennon’s hourly rate based upon Mr. McKennon’s experience and skill, which appears to be the highest hourly rate ever allowed for an attorney in an ERISA case filed in Southern California.
