Disability Claimant Not Permitted To Conduct Extra- Record Discovery, Judge Says

OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma federal judge on Dec. 6 denied a disability claimant's motion to conduct discovery outside of the administrative record after determining that the claimant failed to carry his burden of proving that the disability insurer's conflict of interest as both claims administrator and claims payer warrants the requested discovery (John Williamson v. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, No. 19-481, W.D. Okla., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210631).
