ERIC Jointly Files An Amicus Brief Filed On The Bond And Craig v. Marriott International Case

ERIC jointly files an amicus brief filed on the Bond and Craig v. Marriott International case with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Benefits Council.  The law firm of Paul Hastings prepared the brief.

The brief addressed two issues: statute of limitations issue and top hat.  On the statute of limitations issue, the brief argued that the Fourth Circuit has already adopted a rule that the statute of limitations for ERISA claims is properly triggered when the beneficiary has received notice of repudiation.

On the top-hat issue, we argue in support of statutory construction of the provision and recommend that the Court not defer to the Department of Labor’s interpretation.
