United States Second Circuit

Coutard v. Municipal Credit Union, 15-1113

In a case alleging that plaintiff's former employer interfered with and denied his right under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), 29 U.S.C. section 2601 et seq., to take leave in order to take care of his seriously ill grandfather who, in loco parentis, had raised him as a child, the district court's grant of summary judgment to defendant is vacated where because plaintiff met the eligibility requirements for FMLA leave and requested that leave expressly to care for his seriously ill grandfather, defendant as an employer covered by the FMLA had an obligation to specify any additional information that it needed in order to determine whether plaintiff was entitled to such leave.
