Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 83 F.3d 426 (9th Cir. 1996)

Argued and Submitted March 8, 1996. Decided April 24, 1996


Before: REINHARDT, KOZINSKI and FERNANDEZ, Circuit Judges.


MEMORANDUM* 

While the summary plan description could have been clearer, it didn't contradict the policy. Loss of hearing does not necessarily include partial loss. That a "loss" resulted in a fixed entitlement, equal to a year and a half in salary, makes total loss the more plausible interpretation.

AFFIRMED.
