High Court Declines To Review Insurance Cases

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to take up a case that deals with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.

Donna Scheibler, the plaintiff in the case, Scheibler v. Highmark Blue Shield et al., sued a unit of Highmark Inc., Pittsburgh, in a state court in Pennsylvania over the unit’s decision to deny coverage for an operation sought under a group health plan.

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower-court ruling which held that ERISA pre-empts state jurisdiction over employee benefit coverage suits.

The court also declined to take up First Command Financial et al. v. McPhail et al., a case involving sales of insurance-based savings products to military personnel.
