Fleisher v. Standard Insurance Co., 11-2490

In a case in which a long-term disability (LTD) insurance provider reduced a dentist's monthly benefits by the amount of the monthly benefits he received under a separate LTD insurance policy, the district court's dismissal of the dentist's ERISA claim is affirmed, where: 1) the district court did not err in determining that the arbitrary and capricious standard of review of the plan administrator's decision applied; 2) the plan administrator reasonably determined that the other policy fell within the meaning of "another group insurance coverage" and so amounts paid under it could reduce the amount the defendant insurer owed.
