The ERISA Uncertainty Principle: Edmonson v. Lincoln National Life Insurance Company and ERISA's Unanswered Questions (PDF)
Jenner & Block via Employee Relations Law Journal Link to more items from this source
June 11, 2014
"ERISA at 40 is showing the kind of identity crisis that might signal an impending mid-life crisis. The petition underscores the substantial uncertainty that continues to surround the statute despite the significant judicial interpretation the federal courts have applied to its provisions over the last 40 years.... [It] raises two fundamental questions about the extent of ERISA's reach. First, who is subject to ERISA's fiduciary obligations? And, second, when are benefits due under an ERISA plan no longer plan assets subject to the statute?" [Edmonson v. Lincoln National Life Ins. Co., No. 12-1581 (3d Cir. Aug. 7, 2013; cert. denied May 19, 2014)]
