Disability Claimant's LTD Benefits Reinstated; Insurer's Termination Not Supported

ATLANTA - A disability insurer acted arbitrarily and capriciously in terminating a claimant's long-term disability (LTD) benefits because the evidence does not support the insurer's finding that the claimant was capable of performing the duties of his job as a software engineer, a Georgia federal judge said June 4 (Arthur F. Lesser IV v. Reliance Standard Life Insurance Co., No. 18-824, N.D. Ga., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 99418).
