Supreme Court upholds ruling on health benefits
New York Times, June 20, 2008
Employees whose benefits claims are denied are entitled to a fuller day in court than they tend to get now, the United States Supreme Court has decided. Until now, employees who felt wrongly deprived of benefits could expect little help in court unless they could show that their plan administrators had behaved in an arbitrary, capricious or unprincipled way. The Court has eased that requirement, but stopped well short of setting out specific new rules for when and how employees could challenge adverse benefits decisions.
