Marin v. Dave & Buster’s
United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
159 F. Supp. 3d 460 (2016)
Maria De Lourdes Parra Marin (plaintiff) worked full-time for Dave & Buster’s, Inc. (defendant) from 2006 until 2013 and was a participant in its health plan. After the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Dave & Buster’s announced that the costs of complying with the ACA, including providing more extensive benefits than the company previously offered and potentially to more employees, necessitated reductions in the number of full-time staff. Dave & Buster’s reduced Marin’s hours, and after becoming a part-time employee, Marin was no longer eligible to participate in the health plan. Marin filed suit, arguing that Dave & Buster’s unlawfully discriminated against her for the purpose of interfering with the attainment of rights to which she was entitled under the benefit plan in violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Dave & Buster’s moved to dismiss Marin’s complaint.
