In 2008, OP retained Raymond Nardo because her long-term disability carrier ceased paying her long term disability benefit in 2005. Mr. Nardo filed an action in United States Federal Court for the Southern District of New York claiming that the insurance company arbitrarily and capriciously terminated OP's long term disability benefit. Despite the difficult burden involved, the case proceeded to discovery and both sides moved for summary judgment. By decision dated November 18, 2009, Judge Sidney H. Stein granted OP's motion for summary judgment and restored OP's benefit, retroactive to 2005. The defendant paid counsel fees to Attorney Nardo.
