Text of Brief by Cambridge Financial Services, LLP Urging Supreme Court to Overturn Ninth Circuit Decision in Tibble v. Edison (PDF)

Dec. 15, 2014
"CFS's experience in advising and counseling ERISA fiduciaries and its knowledge and understanding of prevailing and evolving best practices and 3 standards of care yields four key observations: [1] many plan fiduciaries, especially among large plans, already follow good monitoring practices, meaning that reversing the Ninth Circuit will not result in increased costs for these fiduciaries or their employers; [2] the cost of regular monitoring includes a small amount for 'benchmarking' plan fees in all service categories -- investment, administration, trustee, consulting, and the like, and is, in many cases, largely born by plan participants, not employers or fiduciaries; [3] the Ninth Circuit's decision threatens to erode the past decade's progress on fee reductions in defined contribution plans, driven in part by private lawsuits, which has saved plan participants billions of dollars ; and [4] the Ninth Circuit's standard of 'material' changed circumstances is unworkable and illogical."
