Stradley Ronon Counsel Mark Chopko discussed the Supreme Court's decision that religiously affiliated hospitals can run their pension plans as exempt from ERISA. Chopko filed an amicus brief supporting the hospitals on behalf of the Catholic Health Association.

“Although the Court indicates that there may be other issues to be resolved—such as the association of the hospitals with the Church—given the centrality of the construction of the statute to these disputes, we expect the decision will go a long way to resolve these cases entirely, Chopko said in the Bloomberg BNA article, "SCOTUS Sides With Religious Hospitals in Church Plan Dispute." He said the group was very pleased that the Supreme Court confirmed the settled understanding of religious charities and the long-held position of the relevant government agencies."
