|Church Plan Litigation: Out of the ERISA Woods Into the State Law Forest|
Groom Law Group
Dec. 29, 2021
"A recent slip opinion in a case involving a church plan maintained by a hospital in upstate New York reminds us that being a non-ERISA plan brings its own set of challenges because state law is not preempted. In particular, the case illustrates that, if a church plan starts to fail to pay benefits, its sponsor -- as well as related entities such as the church it is controlled by or associated with -- may find themselves subject to various pension-related claims under state law." [Hartshorne v. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, New York, 2021 NY Slip Op. 07329 (3rd App. Div., Dec. 23, 2021)]
