Denial Of Short-Term Disability Benefits Was Not An Abuse Of Discretion

GREENSBORO, N.C. - A disability plan claims administrator did not abuse its discretion in denying a claimant's short-term disability (STD) benefits claim, a North Carolina federal judge said March 28 after determining that the claims administrator's decision was supported by substantial evidence (Eric Jones v. Charter Communications Short Term Disability Plan, No. 17-863, M.D. N.C., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 52345).
