Judge Strikes Claimant's Exhibit, Says Letter Is Not Part Of Administrative Record

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - A Missouri federal judge on Oct. 24 granted a disability insurer's motion to strike a letter offered as an exhibit to a claimant's complaint after determining that the letter, which states that the claimant's disability was not caused by a pre-existing condition, is not part of the administrative record because the claimant failed to provide the letter to the insurer during the administrative appeal process (Stacey Waite v. Sun Life Assurance Co., No. 18-208, E.D. Mo., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 182354).
