Disability Benefits Reinstated; Termination Was Arbitrary, Capricious, Judge Says
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Tennessee federal judge on March 5 reinstated a disability claimant's benefits after determining that the insurer acted arbitrarily and capriciously in terminating the benefits because the evidence does not support a finding that the claimant is capable of earning 50 percent of his pre-disability salary as required by the plan (Gary Carty v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., et al., No. 15-1186, M.D. Tenn., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 35992).
