:: Allegations Insufficient To Assert Equitable Relief In ERISA Reimbursement Case

The court finds that Sun Life has failed to sufficiently allege that the particular funds to which it claims an entitlement to under the Plan’s reimbursement provision are funds belonging in good conscience to Sun Life and can clearly be traced to particular funds in plaintiff’s possession or control, such that the court could impose a constructive trust or equitable lien on such funds.
