6th Circuit Majority Says Disability Insurer's Benefits Denial Was Not Reasonable

CINCINNATI - The majority of a Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on Oct. 31 vacated a district court's judgment in favor of a disability insurer after determining that the insurer's denial of disability benefits was arbitrary and capricious because the insurer's decision was not the result of a deliberate, principled reasoning process regarding the claimant's ability to perform her job as a nurse (Susan Card v. Principal Life Insurance Co., No. 18-6095, 6th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 32573).
