A Fulton County State Court Judge has given preliminary approval for the settlement of a class action lawsuit against Fortis Benefits Insurance Company (FBIC) and others.

The case alleges that FBIC improperly raised health insurance premiums based on length of time the policy was in force and medical condition of policyholders. Notice of the settlement with an opportunity to participate in the $11 million settlement will be mailed to more than 5,700 Georgians by June 14th who purchased an Upper Midwest Employer Group Individual Medical Plan (UMEG IMP) issued by Fortis Benefits Insurance Company from 1996 through July 2008.

In an unanimous ruling, the Barnes Law Group scored an appellate victory for a Marietta family when the Georgia Supreme Court rejected claims by a mistress of a millionaire Marietta auto dealer, finding she was not entitled to receive an annuity of $7,900 a month for the rest of her life.

The Barnes Law Group successfully recovered this money and property back for the Estate of Harvey Strother. The Supreme Court further agreed with the Barnes Law Group that the mistress was not entitled to other gifts including property in Florida and Cape Cod.
