Where plaintiff challenged the finding that an insurer did not abuse its discretion when it terminated his long-term disability benefits, the judgment is affirmed because even though the plaintiff presented some evidence of disability from his medical providers, the insurer had evidence that the plaintiff was deliberately exaggerating his symptoms, so the plaintiff failed to provide sufficient evidence of continuing disability.
Judgment is affirmed.
