Substantial Evidence Supports Disability Insurer's Termination Of Benefits

NEW ORLEANS - A disability insurer did not abuse its discretion in terminating a claimant's long-term disability (LTD) benefits because substantial evidence supported the insurer's finding that the claimant was not disabled from her own occupation as an attorney as a result of migraine headaches, the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said April 4 (Amanda C. Foster v. Principal Life Insurance Co., No. 17-30997, 5th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 9946).
