Termination Of Disability Benefits Was Arbitrary And Capricious, Majority Says

CHICAGO - A disability insurer acted arbitrarily and capriciously when it failed to consider the opinions of four doctors in favor of one doctor who determined that a disability claimant was not disabled as a result of radiculopathy, a majority of the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said Sept. 14 reversing a district court's opinion and remanding the claim to the plan administrator (Susan Hennen v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., No. 17-3080, 7th Cir., 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 26114).
