Issue: Spring 2013
ABOUT THIS ISSUE
The days grow longer, the taxes are being paid and the PPACA regulations continue to flow. As the flowers begin to sprout, and the cherry blossoms fade, it is time for the first 2013 edition of the EBC Newsletter. Our continuing efforts to address a broad spectrum of issues and developments of interest bring you the following offerings in this edition:
- The Co-Chairs provide their per curiam perspectives on the Midwinter Meeting;
- Jim Nelson steps out of the editorial chair to offer his musings: "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, ERISA § 510 and the Next Generation of Benefits Litigation Concerns";
- Julie Wilensky writes: "When an ERISA Plaintiff Proves a Breach of Fiduciary Duty and a Loss to the Plan, Who Has the Burden of Proving (or Disproving) Causation?";
- John R. Harney gives his perspective on "Criminal Convictions and ERISA § 411";
- We also congratulate the most recently installed new fellows of the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel; and
- The ever-popular As we go to e-Press returns.
