Test Is Abuse of Discretion
A trial court granted judgment to Connecticut General after concluding that it had not abused its discretion in terminating the disability benefits owed to Dennis Siegel. In Dennis Siegel v. Connecticut General Life Insurance Company; Group Long Term Disability For Salaried Employees of Lockheed Martin Corporation, No. 12-1897 (8th Cir. 01/02/2013) the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeal was asked to reverse the finding and continue Siegel’s benefits.
