Termination Of Disability Benefits Was Reasonable, W.Va. Federal Judge Says
CHARLESTON, W.Va.- The termination of a claimant's disability benefits was not unreasonable because an insurer properly concluded that the claimant was no longer disabled from his own occupation as an attorney based on his decision to accept a full-time position as an attorney after resigning from his former law firm, a West Virginia federal judge said June 26 (Vaughn T. Sizemore v. Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co., No. 17-789, S.D. W.Va., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 106972).
