Termination of disability benefits affirmed

Co. of Am., 09-4275, concerned a challenge to the district court's dismissal of plaintiff's suit against an insurer's decision to terminate plaintiff's long-term disability benefits for complications caused by a spinal fusion surgery.  In affirming, the court held that the insurer's decision was not arbitrary and capricious, and its conclusion that plaintiff was no longer disabled within the meaning of the plan is supported by substantial evidence.
