Denial Of Disability Benefits Was Not Wrong, 11th Circuit Panel Says

ATLANTA - A district court did not err in granting a disability insurer's motion for judgment on the pleadings because the disability claimant did not exhaust all administrative remedies under the long-term disability (LTD) plan and the disability claimant was not entitled to short-term disability (STD) benefits as he already was receiving workers' compensation benefits, the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said June 24 (Lionel Garcon v. United Mutual of Omaha Insurance Co., No. 18-12220, 11th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 18713).
