Case: McCann v. Unum Provident
Conclusion: The court found that Provident incorrectly defined plaintiff’s occupation in administering his disability claim and that the claim must be evaluated in the context of his specialty. The Court will remand for the District Court to consider whether the plaintiff’s medical conditions prevent him from being able to perform his “substantial and material duties”, as required by the terms of the policy.
