  • 99-1786    GREAT-WEST LIFE INS., ET AL. v. KNUDSON, JANETTE, ET VIR
    Questions presented: 1. This Court previously held in Mertens v. Hewitt Associates, 508 U.S. 248 (1993), that 'equitable relief, as used in 29 U.S.C. 1132(a)(3),means those types of relief that were typically available in equity (such as injunction, mandamus, and restitution, but not compensatory damages.)

The Court therefore held that federal court lack subject matter jurisdiction over action brought by ERISA plan fiduciaries to enforce recoupment provisions. Did the Court err?
