Court Holds Hearings on Excellus Class Action Case

ExcellusEarlier this year, the Defendants filed papers with the Court asking that the Class Action case be dismissed on various legal grounds. Plaintiffs filed opposition papers asking the Court to continue the case.

In September, Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford of the United States District Court for the Western District of New York held a hearing to hear argument on the various legal issues presented in the motion to dismiss papers and to ask the attorneys questions.

The hearing lasted over three and one-half hours, which is significantly longer than most hearings on a motion to dismiss, with Hadley Matarazzo and James Bilsborrow arguing on behalf of the plaintiffs.

The Court is expected to issue a decision on the case by the end of December.
