  Generally

  C.A.9, 2018. Cit. generally in case cit. in sup. In an action for judicial review of an ERISA plan
  administrator's denial of a claim for coverage for beneficiary's leg amputation, this court reversed the
  district court's decision, holding that coverage should not have been denied on grounds of a pre-existing
  condition of diabetes, because the record did not demonstrate that beneficiary's diabetic condition
  substantially caused or contributed to the loss of his leg. The court noted that federal courts often turned
  to the Restatement Third of Agency for guidance in formulating federal common law in the context of
  ERISA. Dowdy v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, 890 F.3d 802, 809.



                            CHAPTER 1. INTRODUCTORY MATTERS

                          TOPIC 1. DEFINITIONS AND TERMINOLOGY

   1.01 Agency Defined

  C.A.2, 2018. Com. (c) quot. in sup. Non-profit designer of educational materials that it sold in book
  form and released without charge, subject to a public license that permitted reproduction for non-
  commercial purposes only, sued operator of commercial print shops, alleging that defendant infringed
  plaintiff s copyright by reproducing the materials in the course of its for-profit business at the request of
  certain school districts that were exercising their noncommercial-use rights under the license. The
  district court granted defendant's motion to dismiss. Affirming, this court held that, under non-exclusive
  copyright licenses like the one at issue, licensees could use the assistance of third parties such as
  defendant in exercising their rights unless the license clearly stated otherwise. The court rejected
  plaintiff s argument that defendant acted as a licensee in its own right when it reproduced the materials
  for profit, explaining that defendant acted as a non-employee agent of the school districts under
  principles of agency set forth in Restatement Third of Agency  1.01. Great Minds v. Fedex Office and
  Print Services, Inc., 886 F.3d 91, 95.

  C.A.9, 2018. Cit. and quot. in disc. Former airline maintenance technician filed a lawsuit against airline
  company and union, alleging that defendants retaliated against him for whistleblowing; defendants filed
  motions to compel arbitration pursuant to an arbitration provision in a settlement agreement between
  plaintiff and airline company in a previous whistleblowing action. The district court granted defendants'
  motion to compel arbitration. This court reversed in part, holding, inter alia, that union could not compel
  arbitration based on the settlement agreement, because it was not an agent of airline company. The court
  cited Restatement Third of Agency  1.01 in explaining that union's activities in representing airline
  employees were not done on airline company's behalf and under airline company's control, which
  disqualified union from being airline company's agent. American Airlines, Inc. v. Mawhinney, 904 F.3d
  1114, 1123, 1124.
