Orthopedic Surgeon Not Entitled To Total Disability Benefits, Judge Determines

NEW YORK - A New York federal judge on Jan. 3 granted a disability insurer's motion for summary judgment and denied a disability claimant's motion for summary judgment after determining that an orthopedic surgeon is not entitled to total disability benefits for the periods in which he returned to work because he was still able to complete the majority of his responsibilities as an orthopedic surgeon even though he was unable to perform surgeries (Richard Sternberg v. Paul Revere Life Insurance Co., No. 17-8523, S.D. N.Y., 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 1718).
