ERISA Preempts State Law Claims; Disability Suit Barred By Plan's Suit Limitation

CHICAGO - A district court did not err in finding that the Employee Retirement Income Security Act preempts a disability claimant's state law claims and that the claimant's complaint is barred by the disability plan's three-year suit limitation, the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals said June 7 (Teresa Di Joseph v. Standard Insurance Co., et al., No. 18-2178, 7th Cir., 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 17127).
