WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A Florida federal judge on May 30 denied a disability income insurer's motion for summary judgment and referred the disability claimant's suit to a federal magistrate judge for a settlement conference after determining that questions of fact exist as to whether the claimant was entitled to total disability benefits under the policy (Joseph J. Thomas v. The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co., No. 18-14166, S.D. Fla., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 90543).
