Re: First party request for records concerning plaintiff's disability claim and unemployability benefits Disposition: Granting defendant's motion for summary judgment
  • Adequacy of search:  The court finds that defendant conducted a reasonable and adequate search for records.  "[P]laintiff's claim is premised entirely on the absence of the requested documents. The mere absence of a requested document is not a sufficient basis for declaring a search unreasonable."  Accordingly, the court grants summary judgment in favor of defendant.
