Simon Lazarus and Ian Millhiser have a great article in The Guardian last week about ERISA's inadequate job of protecting employees and their dependents. The link they provide in their article for the "smoking gun" that is Provident's internal memo about the lack of remedies for violations of ERISA comes from this website's library! In commenting on the article, Chris Nichols at the North Carolina Trial Law Blog provides an apt description of ERISA: it is a "horrible and judicially mutilated zombie."
