Feuer on CIGNA v. Amara and the Use of ERISA §502(a)(1)(B) to Enforce Benefit Terms Used in SPD

Contract Albert Feuer, a friend of the blog, brings to our attention his new brief article, “CIGNA v. Amara: Supreme Court Unconvincingly Rejects Use of ERISA §502(a)(1)(B) to Enforce Benefit Terms Used in SPD.” This article appeared in the July 18, 2011 issue of the Tax Management Weekly Report. 

Unlike most other commentators, Albert does not focus on the scope of the relief the Supreme Court majority held was available, but rather on the relief all the participating Justices seemed to hold was unavailable.
