Supreme Court Asks for SG Views on Another ERISA Case

Erisa You know, if the Supreme Court really wanted to I guess they could fill a large part of their docket with mind-boggling ERISA cases.  It hasn't quite reached that extent, but another one might actually be on the way to being reviewed by the Supreme Court.

SCOTUSBlog reports:

The Court asked for the federal government’s views in two pending cases: Amschwand v. Spherion Corp. (07-841) and Harbison v. Bell (07-8521.)  The Amschwand case tests whether a participant or beneficiary in an ERISA health benefits plan may sue for the insurance benefits that would have been available but for a violation of a plan administrator’s duty.

Not surprisingly, another ERISA remedies case trying to make sense of the comprehensive and reticulated scheme that Congress established.

All I can say is I wish the S.Ct. would stop with the ERISA cases this year.
