Documents Will Not Be Excluded From Administrative Record, Magistrate Judge Says
MADISON, Wis. - A Wisconsin federal magistrate judge on May 3 denied a disability claimant's motion to exclude the plan's insurance certificate and appointment of claim fiduciary form from the administrative record after determining that the claimant failed to provide any citation to statutory or case law that requires the exclusion of the documents from the administrative record based on the claim administrator's failure to provide the documents to the claimant upon request (Joleen M. Lerch v. Life Insurance Company of North America, No. 18-589, W.D. Wis., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 74946).
