Text of Sixth Circuit Opinion: Participants Entitled to Enhanced 'Change of Control' Retirement Benefit Even Though Employment Continued with Successor Employer (PDF)
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit Link to more items from this source
July 15, 2014
"[W]hen each of the terms in [Plan] Section 19.11(f) is given its ordinary meaning, the phrase 'whose employment with the Controlled Group is involuntarily terminated' is unambiguous and has only one plausible interpretation. It requires only that the individual's employment with the Controlled Group be involuntarily terminated, not that the individual experience a job loss or some otherwise undefined period of unemployment.... The plan administrator's decision to the contrary was therefore arbitrary and capricious." [Adams v. Anheuser Busch, No. 13-3149 (6th Cir. July 11, 2014)]
