Transcript of Oral Argument Before the Supreme Court Addressing ERISA Preemption of Vermont Statute Mandating Data Collection from Self-Insured Health Plans (PDF)
Supreme Court of the United StatesLink to more items from this source
Dec. 3, 2015
65 pages. "[Justice Kagan, to counsel for the DOL, appearing as amicus for petitioner Vermont:] [W]hen 50 States devise 50 different requirements for this, different formatting, different particular information requested, that just all adds up to a lot of hassle, which all adds up to a lot of money.... [Justice Kagan, to counsel for respondent Liberty Mutual:] [T]he State here clearly is not attempting to, and is not regulating, payment of benefits. It's doing something that has an effect on your operations, no doubt, but the State is operating in a completely separate area for completely separate purposes in a way that does not trump or conflict with, or anything else, the choices that ERISA has made as to payment of benefits." [Gobeille v. Liberty Mutual Ins. Co., (2d Cir. Feb. 4, 2014, argued Dec. 2, 2015)]
