Plan Administrator's Motion To Reconsider Partially Granted Based On Elimination Period

BALTIMORE - A Maryland federal judge on Feb. 1 partially granted a plan administrator's motion to reconsider after determining that the administrator's denial of long-term disability (LTD) benefits for one of two periods of time was justified based on the plan's elimination period, which neither party addressed when the judge initially ruled against the plan (Leslie R. Vetter v. American Airlines Inc., et al., No. 16-2833, D. Md., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 15550).
