SCOTUS argument: What's an ERISA church plan?

Advocate Health Care Network v. Stapleton [Supreme Court briefs] comes up for oral argument at the US Supreme Court on March 27. "Church plans" are specifically exempt from ERISA. Thus, church plans can ignore the many requirements and restrictions that ERISA requires of pension and benefit plans that are maintained by other private employers. The central issue is whether an employee benefit plan must be initially established by a church in order to qualify for ERISA's church plan exemption, or whether it is enough that the plan is maintained by a church or by a church-controlled or church-affiliated organization.
