A Pennsylvania organization is suing a woman over an alleged agreement breach, citing failure to reimburse plan funds as mandated by the proceeds of litigation.

United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) Health and Retirement Funds filed a lawsuit Feb. 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Betty L. Decker, claiming an alleged breach of agreement, due to failure to reimburse plan funds.

According to the complaint, Decker sustained injuries in a motor vehicle accident on Jan. 28, 2010. She later filed a lawsuit, seeking damages originating from the accident. Decker received benefits under the UMWA Health and Retirement Funds plan.

The plaintiff, UMWA, alleges that the defendant has refused to reimburse the plan in accordance to the settlement agreement and seeks repayment.

UMWA is represented by attorney Richard A. Estacio of Gibson & Sharps, PSC, in Bala Cynwyd.
