How long would you pursue your valuable insurance benefits?
Rule 81. Applicability of the Rules in General; Removed Action
(b)Scire Facias and Mandamus.The writs of scire facias and mandamus are abolished. Relief previously available through them may be obtained by appropriate action or motion under these rules.
(1)Applicability.These rules apply to a civil action after it is removed from a state court.
(2)Further Pleading.After removal, repleading is unnecessary unless the court orders it. A defendant who did not answer before removal must answer or present other defenses or objections under these rules within the longest of these periods:
(A) 21 days after receiving—through service or otherwise—a copy of the initial pleading stating the claim for relief;
(B) 21 days after being served with the summons for an initial pleading on file at the time of service; or
(C) 7 days after the notice of removal is filed.
(3)Demand for a Jury Trial.
(A)As Affected by State Law.A party who, before removal, expressly demanded a jury trial in accordance with state law need not renew the demand after removal. If the state law did not require an express demand for a jury trial, a party need not make one after removal unless the court orders the parties to do so within a specified time. The court must so order at a party's request and may so order on its own. A party who fails to make a demand when so ordered waives a jury trial.
(B)UnderRule 38.If all necessary pleadings have been served at the time of removal, a party entitled to a jury trial underRule 38must be given one if the party serves a demand within 14 days after:
(i) it files a notice of removal; or
(ii) it is served with a notice of removal filed by another party.
(1)“State Law” Defined.When these rules refer to state law, the term “law” includes the state's statutes and the state's judicial decisions.

See: 18 U.S.C. §1341 (Frauds and Swindles)See also as may be applicable: Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) 31 U.S.C. § 3729 (a)(1)(2)(3),(b),(c))(Money and Finance / False Claims through 3733), false claims against the government and the judicial tax payers, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) acknowledges "possible fraud" in open court.

The insurance company (Defendant: Fortis Benefits Insurance Company / Fortis/ (now called ~ Assurant / Assurant Employee Benefits / Union Security Insurance Company ) willfully performs malice acts to a legal breech of contract, which generates "state law claims" by the insured (Plaintiff). Then the insurance company and their legal representatives "conspire" to perform actions to federally "removal" the "state law claims" at issue to the federal venue, via "diversity of citizenship" with amount over $75,000, and "false statements" and "false claims" of a term expressed as "Employee Retirement Income Security Act", "ERISA" for a federal question, without valid consent or valid merit of the Long Term Disability (LTD) policy expressly written "controlling terms" at issue.

***************************************************************************************** In addition the insurance company expresses "actions of malice" to the Plaintiff, the officers of the court, and the taxpayers State and Federal courts, pursuant to "willfully, knowingly", "in deliberate ignorance of the truth", with "specific intent", to "present" a "false and fraudulent claim(s)", and request or demand for "approval" from the U.S. Government, of money "paid" by judiciary budget, to the courts, and officers of the courts, as other recipient, at tax payers expense; for property (attempted acquisition and abolishment of citizens" goods; "State and Federal Constitutional laws", and of citizens "services"; to written legal statues, without consent or good merit ,via 'False Claims' and "false statements" as contract or otherwise; (numerous "legal briefs to a court of law while under oath"), as applied herein per years of allegations to Defendant's criminal actions to "fraud on the court", and then actions protracting into Constitutional law violations.
Assurant (Insurance Company) / fka Fortis, and their legal representative, of case(s) herein, have made a "request or demand", for the financial courts litigation expenses to be "paid" by the U.S. Government / taxpayers; while they are seeking a "federal financial shelter", and at the same time are "barring" the American citizens access, privilege and right to a Constitutional law, and a "jury demand".
Legal Remedies of Relief for the Insured Party
See again state and federal applications: 15 U.S.C. § 1011 (Declaration of policy) and 1012 (a)(b) (Regulation by State law; Federal law relating specifically to insurance; applicability of certain laws after June 30, 1948.).
"Fraud on the court"; See FRCP Rule(s) 38, 39, and 60(d)(1)(3) and 81(b),(c)(3)(A)(B), and 18 U.S.C. Sections 1035 and 1341 for remedies and relief to all American citizens. In addition, Ohio Rule (s) 38 and 39 (Jury trial of right) also apply herein.
Note: Case law herein, now "bad case law" for (15) years, as the state and federal courts have determined herein that the elements of business contract "notifications", "disclosures", "controlling terms" and "federal mandates" of common words and textual terms expressed as "Employee Retirement Income Security Act", "ERISA", are eliminated from the judge(s) determinations and judgments on the courts. All while under alleged conditions of insurance company fraud and "fraud on the court", thus affecting good general business practices and business contract matters of law, all at the tax payers expense. Note that "Grand Jury" hearings have also been denied by the court(s).
The "state court" (Ohio) has "sovereignty" of these "state law claims" cases, as applicable to the Constitutional laws to a "trial by jury" herein, and without any perpetrated language text or provisions to the "Employee Retirement Income Security Act", "ERISA", at the will of the insurance company while performing the "business of insurance".
Conclusion and Support The "inhabitants" of the City of Dayton remain steadfast in their quest for "state court sovereignty" of their cases while in pursuit of their day in court with a "jury demand" of impartial American citizens, as prescribed by law, and shared as "correct" future case law, via FRCP 24 (Intervention) and 60 (d)(3) (Relief / Fraud on the court), 28 U.S.C.2403(a) with (b), along with the oath of affirmation to the Ohio Constitution and Article VI of the United States Constitution.
In truth, and available only with valor of oath, the "Gem City" Government, Dayton Police, Montgomery County Sheriff with the State of Ohio Prosecutor, Ohio Department of Insurance, Ohio Attorney General, and Federal agents with the Federal Prosecutor, the United States Attorney General, Solicitor General, along with and State and Federal government Representatives must collectively and proactively intervene and protect "We The People", and our Rights in these matters of alleged "Theft and Fraud" violations, so as to protect and preserve Constitutional law and the business of insurance for the people locally, and across this nation.
