Information About Medical Reviewers Is Relevant, Kentucky Federal Judge Says
(October 31, 2016, 2:53 PM EDT) -- OWENSBORO, Ky. — A Kentucky federal judge on Oct. 21 rejected a disability insurer’s objections to a magistrate judge’s discovery order and the insurer’s motion for a protective order regarding information about the medical reviewers used by the insurer in evaluating a disability claim because the information sought by the claimant is relevant and not unduly burdensome (Paulette Owens v. Liberty Life Assurance Company of Boston, No. 15-71, W.D. Ky.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 145941).
