Tow Distributing Inc., et al. v. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, Inc.

Represented BCBS Minnesota in multiple class action lawsuits in which insured employer plans sought premium refunds out of BCBS Minnesota’s historic $469 million settlement with the tobacco companies.  We guided BCBS Minnesota through contested regulatory proceedings, and gained approval from state and federal regulators for BCBS Minnesota’s plan to rebate $30 million.  BCBS Minnesota then settled the class claims for $11 million, permitting it to use remaining funds to reduce the incidence of smoking, cancer, and heart disease in Minnesota.
