Panel Denies Disability Claimant's Motion To Transfer Attorney Fee Question

SAN FRANCISCO - The Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Jan. 14 denied a disability claimant's motion to transfer consideration of attorney fees to the district court, which will be considering the source of a claimant's disability on remand, because the claimant has not yet achieved any degree of success on the merits (Miae Decovich v. Anthem Life Insurance Co., No. 17-15324, 9th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 1218).
