Jeff Matura and Amanda Taylor prevail on appeal to the ninth circuit court of appeals regarding disability insurance dispute
Jeff Matura and Amanda Taylor represented an international disability insurance company in a dispute with a policyholder. The policyholder filed a lawsuit alleging the insurance company wrongfully denied her claim for disability benefits. The United States District Court agreed with Mr. Matura's and Ms. Taylor's arguments that the insurance company's denial was correct and granted summary judgment in favor of Mr. Matura's and Ms. Taylor's client.
The policyholder appealed the District Court's decision to the Ninth Circuit Court Appeals. After full briefing and oral argument, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision that affirmed the District Court's decision in every respect. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' decision was therefore a complete victory for Mr. Matura's and Ms. Taylor's client.
