Dickens v. Aetna Life Insurance Co., 11-1434

In an employee's ERISA suit arising out of the termination of long-term disability benefits under his employer-sponsored plan, an appeal by the claims administrator of an interlocutory order remanding the matter to it is dismissed for lack of jurisdiction, where: 1) a district court order remanding to an ERISA claims administrator for reconsideration does not constitute a final decision; and 2) the collateral order doctrine did not apply.
