Federal Judge Permits Limited Extra Discovery In Disability Benefits Dispute

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - An Alabama federal judge on Jan. 9 granted a disability claimant's motion to conduct discovery as it pertains to the insurer's conflict of interest because additional discovery will help the court in its review of the insurer's denial of a claim for waiver-of-life-premium (Carol H. Stewart v. Hartford Life& Accident Insurance Co., No. 17-1423, N.D. Ala., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 3647).
