Federal Magistrate Judge Denies Motion To Order IME For Failure To Serve Motion
(October 26, 2016, 12:58 PM EDT) -- TAMPA, Fla. — Because a disability plan administrator was not served with a claimant’s motion seeking an order requiring the plan administrator to reschedule and videotape an independent medical exam (IME), a Florida federal magistrate judge on Oct. 21 denied the claimant’s motion without prejudice and allowed the claimant to refile and serve the motion on the plan administrator (Alexander Stratigos v. Prudential Insurance Company of America, No. 16-2780, M.D. Fla.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 146094).
