7th Circuit hears oral argument on discretionary clause ban

On December 1, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals heard oral argument in the case of Mary C. Fontaine v. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.  The issue before the court was whether an Illinois insurance regulation banning discretionary clauses in health and disability insurance policies survives ERISA preemption claims.  The lower court ruled in Fontaine's favor.
