Muniz v. Amec Const. Mgmt., Inc., No. 09-55689

By FindLaw Staff on October 28, 2010 6:07 PM

Termination of Disability Benefits Upheld

In Muniz v. Amec Const. Mgmt., Inc., No. 09-55689, an action challenging defendant insurance company's termination of plaintiff's disability benefits, the court affirmed judgment for defendant where plaintiff did not meet his burden of proving he was "totally disabled" under the terms of the plan, and thus, the district court did not err in upholding the termination of plaintiff's disability benefits based on a lack of medical documentation supporting the determination of total disability.

 

As the court wrote:  "Dierro Muniz appeals the district court's decision upholding Connecticut General Life Insurance Company's ("CGLIC") termination of Muniz's disability benefits. The district court held that Muniz did not qualify for disability benefits under the terms of his disability insurance plan. We affirm."
