(September 26, 2016, 10:31 AM EDT) -- PHOENIX — The denial of two short-term disability claims was not an abuse of discretion because the medical evidence did not support a finding that the claimant was disabled from performing the duties of her job, the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said Sept. 19 (Carol Molanick v. United Services Automobile Association, No. 14-16404, 9th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 17087).
