Join our presenters Philip Mowery, Esq. and John Jacobsen, Jr., Esq., who review the Supreme Court's recent decision in MetLife v. Glenn, as well as the history of ERISA's "abuse of discretion" standard from Firestone v. Bruch to the present. This hot topic program explores how the Glenn decision is likely to impact the standard of review in the different courts of appeals around the country, and discusses possible ways in which insurers and plan administrators can seek to secure a more deferential standard of review on challenged claim denials.
