Last month’s post, briefly discussed McQuillin v. Hartford, which the Second Circuit issued following an oral argument that sharply criticized Hartford. The decision also decisively rejected Hartford’s argument that it did not have to decide if a claimant is entitled to receive long term disability (“LTD”) benefits in 45 days.
Despite being trounced by the Second Circuit panel at oral argument and in its decision, Hartford decided to file a forty-two (42) page petition in support of a rehearing. The Second Circuit saw fit to respond to Hartford’s petition in only a couple of sentences:
Appellee Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Company, filed a petition for rehearing en banc. The active members of the Court have considered the request for rehearing en banc.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the petition is denied.
