Date: 08-07-2015

A Floyd County circuit judge dismissed a lawsuit last week that had been filed by a wife whose husband took his own life after he learned his federal disability benefits had been suspended.

Emma Burchett had sued Eastern Kentucky disability attorney Eric Conn because Leroy Burchett, her husband, took his own life when he received a letter saying his disability payments had been suspended, WYMT-TV reports.

More than 1,000 of Conn's clients had their disability benefits temporarily suspended. Social Security later reinstated the benefits temporarily.

Judge Thomas Smith dismissed Mrs. Burchett's lawsuit because she testified she didn't foresee her husband's suicide and that Conn could not have foreseen it either.

More than 8 percent of Kentucky and West Virginia residents receive disability payments, among the highest rates in the U.S. That includes about 25 percent of the residents of Kentucky's 5th Congressional District who receive some type of Social Security benefits. Those include retirement, disability and survivor benefits, the station reported.
