The Supreme Court has been taking an increasingly active interest in the obligations imposed on employee benefit plan sponsors and fiduciaries under ERISA and the remedies for breach of those obligations. This Term, the Court is poised to address the requirements for plan fiduciaries to evaluate past decisions over plan administration in the context of ERISA’s six-year limitations period. While the Court’s decision in Tibble v. Edison International is still pending, the Justices’ questions during the argument highlight their approaches to ERISA—which provides a helpful guide for plan sponsors and fiduciaries looking to avoid costly litigation.
