More Supreme Court Interest in ERISA Remedies Cases

The Supreme Court continues to look for ERISA cases to serve as vehicles for exploring the current and proper parameters of that statute, and last week requested from the Solicitor General’s office the government’s views on a potential ERISA case for the Court’s docket, Amschwand v. Spherion Corp. This in and of itself is old news, in a way, to anyone who follows this stuff. I wanted to pass along a post, however, from employment law blogger Donald Heyrich, about the underlying facts of the Amschwand case and the possibility the case presents for the Court to address the issues raised by claims seeking equitable relief under ERISA.  I haven't had a chance yet to look into the case itself, so I can't actually vouch yet for his analysis - or provide my own - but I liked the post enough and the blog as well to want to pass it on today.
