5th Circuit Affirms Ruling That Disability Insurer Did Not Abuse Its Discretion

NEW ORLEANS - The Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Dec. 6 affirmed a district court's ruling that a disability insurer did not abuse its discretion in finding that a claimant was not disabled from performing the duties of her own occupation as an attorney because the objective medical evidence clearly supports the insurer's finding (Anne Wittmann v. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, No. 19-30254, 5th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 36311).
