Sedgwick James Sues Unhappy Disability Policy Holder Because of Maintaining a Web Blog
Can you believe this? Robert Delsman who was employed by GTE, sought Long Term Disability benefits under a MetLife GE plan. He was very unhappy with Sedgwick’s handling of his claim and began expressing his views through a web blog and post card mailing campaign called “operations going postcard.” Sedgwick and their chief executive and chief operating officer were not amused by Delsman’s complaints about wrongful denial of benefits to claimants and accused Sedgwick’s and its “minons” of being “Sedg Dogs.”
Delsman also launched “operation going postcard” to “educate the consuming public” regarding the business practices of Sedgwick and one side of the postcard had a picture of one of the executives with a caption “wanted for human rights violations.”
Sedgwick sued Delsman arguing among other things that he has interfered with their ability to secure a business, defirmation liable and unfair competition.
Delsman counter sued, alledging that Sedgwick’s complaint was attempting to harass and intimidate him in response to the criticism of the company.
In a awesome decision, Judge Armstrong, 6th District Court for the North District of California Oakland Division, granted Delsman’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit file against him by Sedgwick.
Congratulations to Robert Delsman for taking on the business practices of Sedgwick claim’s management and its “Sedg Dogs.”
