"Drunk Driver Victim Montanile Wins in Supreme Court ERISA Case"
01.20.16Erin Sweeney was quoted on lessons learned from the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision in Montanile. The big lesson for employers is that the employer plan in this case would have won if it had immediately sued to enforce the lien against the settlement fund in Montanile's possession, Sweeney said, adding that employers will need to ramp up their safeguards against employees' efforts to evade reimbursement obligations. The only fail safe method for a plan to ensure that an employee repays a lien for medical benefits is for the plan to proactively file a lawsuit or an injunction against the employee, Sweeney said.
