FULL DETAILS TO COME IN NEXT POST--SIX PAGE DECISION REVEALS ALL THE JUICY DETAILS


Shannon Nelson and his merry men (and women) have reached a settlement with Bankers Life & Casualty.  The following is an excerpt from a court filing outlining the tentative settlement.  We are reviewing the six page decision, and will spill all the gory details in our next post.  And, for your entertainment, scroll down and read how Shannon Nelson describes his awesomeness on his Tumblr blog--he's a regular, freaking Mother Theresa!

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION

BANKERS LIFE AND CASUALTY COMPANY, Plaintiff,
v.
SHANNON NELSON, KELLY DACHTLER, RYAN KASHMERICK, TIMOTHY HORVATH, DAVID TEESDALE, TROY BAXTER, LISA BENSON, JOHN BLANCK, BERT BROTHERTON, JOSHUA CLARK, KIRK JOHNSTON, JOHN KIME, SETH KISHEFSKY, JOSEPH MICHALEC, MICHAEL ROBERTSON, KURTIS TULPPO, and JONATHAN YOUNG, Defendants.
 

JOINT MOTION FOR ENTRY OF AN AGREED CONSENT ORDER

Plaintiff Bankers Life and Casualty Company (“Bankers Life”) and Defendants Shannon Nelson, Kelly Dachtler, Ryan Kashmerick, Timothy Horvath, David Teesdale, Troy Baxter, Lisa Benson, John Blanck, Bert Brotherton, Joshua Clark, Kirk Johnston, John Kime, Seth Kishefsky, Joseph Michalec, Michael Robertson, Kurtis Tulppo and Jonathan Young (collectively, “Defendants”) jointly move this Court to enter the proposed Agreed Consent Order (“Consent Order”).

The parties have reached an agreement to settle this case. The parties’ settlement agreement, however, is contingent upon the Court approving and entering the attached Agreed Consent Order. If approved by the Court, the Agreed Consent Order would, among other things: (1) impose certain restrictions and obligations on Defendants related to non-solicitation of Bankers Life’s agents, non-solicitation and non-servicing of Bankers Life’s customers and policyholders, and (2) dismiss Bankers Life’s claims in this case with prejudice (except that the Court would retain jurisdiction for purposes of enforcing the Agreed Consent Order and the settlement agreement entered into by the parties).

(From the pen of Mr. Nelson himself--the remarks in red are mine. But you knew that, right?)
 
With an award-winning record in the insurance industry, Shannon Nelson has spent recent years with American Senior Benefits, LLC. Catering to individuals 55 years of age and over, the firm provides a solid portfolio of competitively priced and reliable health and life insurance programs, including Medicare supplement plans, annuities, and specialty health insurance products. As President of the Traverse City, Michigan branch of American Senior Benefits, Shannon Nelson motivates a team of agents and managers and instills several core values, such as personal integrity, loyalty, and real-time feedback and accountability.
(Are you kidding me right now?!)

Away from his day-to-day responsibilities at American Senior Benefits, Shannon Nelson belongs to the local Chamber of Commerce, while his branch maintains a membership in the Better Business Bureau and sponsors the Traverse Area Senior Softball League. Additionally, Mr. Nelson lends his time to charitable causes like the Humane Society, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Alzheimer’s Association, Meals on Wheels, YMCA, and Goodwill. (I'll bet he meets a lot of old, feeble prospects with those groups. Sheesh, has he no shame?)

Mr. Nelson has spent much of his career in the insurance industry. Earlier, in his role at a previous firm, he performed as a Field Trainer and later as a Branch Manager. During this time, Mr. Nelson served as a Compliance Committee Consultant and as an Executive Council Member. In 2001, Mr. Nelson was recognized with the Most Improved Branch Sales Manager of the Year award. (Ah yes, the "previous firm" that raided his Traverse City office, bounced him out on his fat rear, and sued that fat rear.)

Shannon Nelson holds an undergraduate degree in Business Management from the University of Southern Indiana. A fan of professional and college sports, he follows the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bulls, Detroit Tigers, Dallas Cowboys, Florida State Seminoles, and New England Patriots. (University of Southern Indiana--what, you didn't know there was an Ivy League school in the Hoosier state?)
