Supplemental Disability Policy Not Part Of Employee Welfare Benefit Plan, Judge Says

MINNEAPOLIS - A breach of contract claim is not preempted by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act because the supplemental disability policy at issue is not part of an employee welfare benefit plan under ERISA, a Minnesota federal judge said Sept. 14 in adopting a magistrate judge's recommendation to deny the insurer's motion for summary judgment (Matthew J. Christoff v. Paul Revere Life Insurance Co., No. 17-3515, D. Minn., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 157107).
