By FindLaw Staff on August 06, 2009 4:01 PM

In a dispute involving a denial of long-term disability benefits, district court judgment is vacated and remanded where, although the court properly reviewed defendant's decision under the abuse-of-discretion standard, the case must be remanded to allow the court  to adequately account for defendant's structural conflict of interest as required by the decision in Glenn.
