Judge Orders that Reliance Standard Acted Arbitrarily in Long Term Disability Claim


Elizabeth Thornsbury, one of the firm’s attorneys experienced in short- and long-term disability claims, received an Order in federal court against Reliance Standard Life Insurance Company on June 12, 2019. Judge Caldwell found that “Reliance Standard acted arbitrarily and capriciously in denying Asher’s appeal…” and that “the final denial decision was not the result of a ‘deliberate principled reasoning process.’”  The case was remanded to Reliance Standard to give our client’s claim “a full and fair review.”
