The November 6, 2015 edition of the Los Angeles Daily Journal features an article written by Robert McKennon and Joseph McMillen of the McKennon Law Group entitled: “Supreme Court Ramps Up Interest in ERISA.” In the article, Mr. McKennon and Mr. McMillen discuss five important United States Supreme Court cases involving litigation over employee life, health and disability benefit claims governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. It discusses these cases and explains that the High Court has: (1) relaxed the standard for an employee to recover his attorney fees; (2) allowed discovery previously not permitted; (3) significantly expanded employee remedies; (4) determined plan language controls benefit reimbursement claims; and (5) confirmed an employer’s right to choose plan terms limiting the time to file a lawsuit.
