Majeski v. Metro. Life Ins. Co., No. 09-1930
In plaintiff-employee's ERISA action against defendant-employer for denying her claim for short-term disability benefits, summary judgment in favor of the defendant is vacated and remanded as a plan administrator's procedures are not reasonable if its determination ignores, without explanation, substantial evidence that the claimant has submitted that addresses what the plan itself has defined as the ultimate issue of whether plaintiff's functional limitations were objectively documented.
