Levy v. Minnesota Life Ins. Co., 07-1006

In a dispute over disability insurance coverage, summary judgment in favor of defendant-insurer is affirmed where the illness resulting from a past injury suffered by plaintiff was the proximate cause of his disability, rather than the injury itself, which limited the amount of his recovery under the terms of the policy.
