Attorney Elliott Andalman, along with law clerk Michelle Amick, were honored to have their article on discovery in ERISA federal court appeals published in the Winter 2010 issue of the Trial Reporter published by the Maryland Association for Justice.

The article, titled “The Scope of Discovery in ERISA Actions Post-Glenn,” which was co-authored with Attorney Richard Neuworth, discusses the practical implications of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Metropolitan Life v. Glenn on the scope of discovery in ERISA actions.  The article reports that the current trend is towards allowing broader discovery in ERISA actions in order to ensure that Plan Administrators fulfill the fiduciary duties owed to employees in evaluating their claims for benefits, such as Long Term Disability (LTD) benefits and health insurance benefits.
