Aetna Life Insurance Lawsuit

Houston Woman Denied $426,000

Supreme Court Will Not Rule on $426,000 Life Insurance Claim

The U.S. Supreme Court chose not to rule on a case of a widow denied $426,000 in life insurance benefits because federal retirement law does not permit her to seek compensation, according to published reports.

The woman, who lives in Houston, wanted the court to rule that her husband’s employer breached its fiduciary duty.

Under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, beneficiaries are entitled to sue to obtain equitable relief, including a court injunction or restitution. However it does not include legal relief or monetary damages.
