Evidence Supports Finding That Claimant Could Perform Duties Of Usual Occupation
(November 3, 2016, 2:47 PM EDT) -- SAN FRANCISCO — A district court did not err in concluding that a disability claimant was not totally disabled by fibromyalgia because the evidence supports the insurer’s determination that the claimant could perform the material and substantial duties of her usual occupation, the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said Oct. 26 (Cheryl Leslie v. United of Omaha Life Insurance Co., No. 14-56775, 9th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 19348).
