The MBA presents a two-hour program on Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) insurance litigation. ERISA broadly preempts otherwise applicable state law and gives the federal courts jurisdiction over most lawsuits relating to group health, disability and life insurance. Many practitioners are unaware of ERISA's significant impact on such lawsuits - until it is too late.
A vast body of case law exists regarding a myriad of ERISA issues, including preemption, removal, exhaustion, time limitations, standard of review, discovery limitations and no jury trials. This program will address these and other issues, including recent developments. The class will be presented by Megan Glor, Attorney at Law and Katherine Somervell of Bullivant Houser Bailey. Any attorney who may be involved in litigation relating to group health, disability or life insurance should attend this program.
