Disability Insurer Did Not Act Arbitrarily, Capriciously In Denying Benefits Claim

CLEVELAND - A disability insurer did not act arbitrarily and capriciously in denying a lawyer's long-term disability (LTD) benefits claim, an Ohio federal judge said June 18, noting that the insurer was entitled to conduct a file-only review of the plan participant's claim (Drew A. Carson v. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, No. 18-1225, N.D. Ohio, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 101676).
