WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments Tuesday in a case involving a former Wal-Mart Stores Inc. employee whose long-term disability benefits claim was denied by the retailer’s insurance provider.
The legal question before the High Court is when the statute of limitations begins for a plaintiff to file a lawsuit against a denied long-term disability benefits claim under the Employment Retirement Income Security Act, or ERISA. The Supreme Court granted writ of certiorari in April to a petition filed by Julie Heimeshoff, a former senior public relations manager for the retailer, against Hartford Life & Accident Insurance Co. and Wal-Mart.
