Federal Magistrate Judge Says Disability Plan Did Not Abuse Its Discretion

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A California federal magistrate judge on Nov. 1 recommended that judgment be entered in favor of a disability claim because the denial of a claim for an extension of short-term disability (STD) benefits was not an abuse of discretion and is supported by the medical evidence (Jerome Clay v. AT&T Umbrella Benefit Plan No. 3, No. 17-749, E.D. Calif., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 190308).
