Seitz v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Co.
433 F.3d 647 (8th Cir. 2006). DeBofsky secured a victory in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit which overturned a ruling from the Northern District of Iowa. The court ruled that the inability of the plaintiff, James Seitz, to perform his job duties for eight hours a day entitled him to disability benefits regardless of whether he could perform his work for a portion of the day.
