Doroshow v. Hartford Life and Accident Ins. Co., No. 08-2836

By FindLaw Staff on July 30, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a dispute involving long term disability benefits, district court judgment is affirmed where defendant was not arbitrary and capricious in its decision to deny long term disability benefits to plaintiff under an employee welfare benefit plan, as plaintiff sought advice for his Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis during the lookback period and was thus ineligible for the benefits under the pre-existing condition plan exclusion.
