This lawsuit was filed by the State of New York, et. al. on July 26, 2018 against the U.S. Department of Labor. The lawsuit challenges a U.S. Department of Labor (DoL) final rule that—the plaintiff alleges—upends a decades-old understanding of a foundational employee benefits law. The plaintiff alleges that the DoL's final rule does this for the purpose of exempting a significant portion of the health insurance market from the Affordable Care Act's consumer protections.   . . .
