ERISA Trumps State Law Claims in Anthem Data Breach (PDF)
King & SpaldingLink to more items from this source
Dec. 11, 2015
"In reaching its conclusion, the [California] District Court found that Defendants -- Anthem and two ERISA plan administrators -- did not have an independent legal duty to protect Plaintiffs' privacy under state privacy laws... Judge Koh's decision stands in contrast to a recent ERISA preemption ruling out of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, where a federal court reached the opposite conclusion regarding whether ERISA completely preempted a state law claim that was based on California's constitutional right to privacy." [In re Anthem, Inc. Data Breach Litig., No. 15-CV-04739-LHK (N.D. Cal. Nov. 24, 2015)]
