Pending are the Defendants’ motion to stay, docket # 20 and Plaintiff’s motion for
judgment on the record, docket # 12. Defendants have advised the Court that they have
determined that the Plaintiff should be placed “in benefit” meaning that he will receive back
benefits and periodic benefit checks in accordance with the Plan. Further, Plaintiff’s counsel has
provided Defendants with an itemization of Plaintiff’s attorneys fees and the parties are
attempting to resolve this issue. Defendants request a sixty (60) day stay of this matter to allow
the parties to work toward a final resolution of this case. For good cause shown, the motion to
stay is GRANTED. In light of the Defendants’ determination to pay benefits, Plaintiff’s motion
for judgment on the record is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE to refile as to any issues which
remain unresolved following the stay of this matter.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 18th day of July, 2012.
