Epstein Becker Green and ERIC will soon be jointly distributing the latest issue of the Benefits Litigation Update, reviewing the latest developments in key litigation matters. This edition also includes a guest article on ERISA preemption from Anthony Shelley of Miller & Chevalier.

The courts continue to decide a wide range of benefit disputes, which greatly impact plan sponsors and fiduciaries. In this upcoming Benefits Litigation Updatewe discuss:

  • Latest developments in ERISA preemption;
  • Firestone v. Bruch type deference when fiduciaries allegedly breach their duties;
  • The obligation to disclose plan-imposed time limits in benefit claim denial letters;
  • Status of recent litigation under the Affordable Care Act;
  • Fourth Circuit’s imposition of a greater burden of proof on 401(k) fiduciaries for lack of “procedural prudence”
  • First Circuit’s award of “interlocutory” attorneys’ fees to plaintiff prior to final determination of the claim;
  • The inclusion of selection-of-venue clauses in ERISA plans; and
  • The EEOC challenges to wellness programs.

ERIC staff and senior counsel from Epstein Becker Green and Miller & Chevalier will discuss on the conference call the key issues summarized in the Update and answer any questions you may have regarding these cases and issues. 

Registration is complimentary for Epstein Becker Green Clients. A copy of the Benefits Litigation Update will be sent to attendees in advance of the call.
