State Law Claims Under Group Life Insurance Policy Were Preempted by ERISA
Williams MullenLink to more items from this source
Nov. 20, 2015

"On ERISA preemption grounds, a federal court has ruled against state law claims asserted by the beneficiary of a former school teacher who sought benefits from a group life insurance policy.... [A recent case] illustrates how a governmental employee's life insurance benefits may fall within the scope of ERISA when sponsored by a non-governmental 'employee organization' and be subject to the full weight of ERISA." [Woods v. American United Life Ins. Company, No. 1:15-cv-859 (N.D. Ala. Nov. 13, 2015)]
