06/04/2012 Oral argument held. (Katzmann, J., Brown, J., Sullivan, J.).
08/23/2012 Decision: Full Opinion. So much of the judgment as dismisses the part of count II alleging breach of contract due to Berkshire's failure to waive the elimination period is affirmed. The judgment is otherwise vacated. On count I, declaratory judgment shall enter for McLaughlin. On that part of count II alleging breach of contract due to Berkshire's failure to pay benefits under the policy for the fourteen-month period at issue, judgment shall enter for McLaughlin. The case is remanded for further proceedings on the three remaining counts--breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing and violations of G.L.c. 176D, ยง 3 (9), and G.L.c. 93A.
