Fifth Circuit Says Attorney's Disability Case 'Does Not Have a Leg to Stand On' After Scorned Boyfriend Provides Emails
Lane Powell PC Link to more items from this source
Sept. 11, 2013
"[The court held that] Unum did not abuse its discretion by considering emails (from the scorned boyfriend) because Unum: (a) identified evidence it received (emails and travel documents etc.) that supported the decision to deny benefits; (b) considered Truitt's rebuttal evidence that the emails had been hacked; [and] (c) addressed Truitt's objections to the emails, finding no evidence the emails had been manipulated or tampered with. The emails appeared authentic and reliable." [Truitt v. UNUM Life Ins. Co. of America, No. 12-50142 (5th Cir. Sept. 6, 2013)]
